Tesla has come forth with claimed deliveries of 1.3m vehicles last year and if true will be a whopping 40% more than 2021.
Despite shortages of chips and factories being closed due to the pandemic, Tesla was still able to sell 405,000 vehicles in the final quarter.
This leaves Tesla on a high in preparedness for the potential for economic instability, which is expected by some to be hitting in 2023.
The Wall Street Journal had actually expected Tesla to outperform the delivered number though, with forecasts set around 430,000.
Tesla reached out to shareholders to quell concerns raised during the year and admitted to the, “significant Covid and supply chain related challenges throughout the year”.
Tesla is expected to release financial results on the 25th of January.
The company has already said, “Our investors will be able to see our most advanced production line as well as discuss long term expansion plans, generation 3 platform, capital allocation and other subjects with our leadership team.”
Tesla shares have fallen up to 65% in 2022, which has been the worse year for the company since going public in 2010.
