Tesla has announced that deliveries of the Tesla Model S increased significantly in the last quarter of 2016.
The company said that deliveries of the Tesla Model S were up 48% on their previous quarterly record and up some 75% on the fourth quarter in the previous year.
Q4 Model S deliveries were approximately 48% more than our prior quarterly record and approximately 75% more than Q4 last year. Model X deliveries are in line with the very early stages of our Model X production ramp as we prioritize quality above all else. That ramp has been increasing exponentially, with the daily production rate in the last week of the year tracking to production of 238 Model X vehicles per week.
There may be small changes to this delivery count (usually well under 1%), as Tesla only counts a delivery if it is transferred to the end customer and all paperwork is correct.
The company delivered a total of 17,192 Model S cars in quarter 4 of 2015 and a total of 208 Model X cars.
