Tesla Delivers 422K, Produces 440K Vehicles in Q1


Tesla released its vehicle delivery and production report for the first quarter of 2023, showing it produced more than 440,000 vehicles and delivered more than 422,000 in Q1 2023.

Specifically, Tesla produced a total of 421,371 Model 3/Y and 19,437 Model S/Model X from January to March, totaling 440,808 vehicles. Tesla also delivered a total of 412,180 Model 3/Y and 10,695 Model S/X in the first quarter, for a total of 422,875 units.

Tesla said it is continuing its transition towards a more regional mix of vehicle builds. These include Model S/X vehicles in transit to the EMEA and APAC regions.

As noted by The Future Fund Managing Partner Gary Black, Tesla’s Q1 2023 results beat Wall Street’s estimates, which were at 421,000. The company’s vehicle delivery and production results are also a new quarterly record, beating Q4 2022’s 405,278 deliveries.

“Tesla delivered 423K EVs in 1Q, ahead of WS estimates of 421K and easily a new quarterly record (4Q 405K). 1Q Production was 440.8K, or DIO of 16 (up from 13 in 4Q), which is respectable given efforts to smooth the delivery wave. 1Q deliveries up +36% vs YA of 310K,” Black wrote on Twitter. However, the Wall Street veteran noted TSLA stock might see a neutral reaction considering its run-up the week before the report.

Considering the first quarter saw the Chinese New Year holiday in China and February was only 28 days this year, Tesla’s production of more than 440,000 vehicles and delivery of more than 422,000 is extremely impressive. It also bodes well for the company’s performance in the coming quarters this year.

Tesla also released the date for its first-quarter earnings call. The Q1 2023 Update Letter will be posted after market close April 19. The Q1 2023 earnings call itself will be held at 4:30 p.m. CT. Similar to past earnings calls, the event will be live-streamed.
