The primary weeks of January are at all times stuffed with quantity crunching, as automakers begin placing out their gross sales outcomes for the fourth quarter and the earlier 12 months as an entire. Tesla is likely one of the first to launch This autumn 2023 numbers, asserting that in 2023 it produced 1,845,985 automobiles and delivered 1,808,581 — a brand new file for the EV model. What Tesla isn’t saying but, although, is simply what number of Cybertrucks had been constructed and delivered final 12 months.

As you might keep in mind, the primary 10 Cybertrucks had been delivered to buyer fingers on November 30, with every proprietor filmed on the livestream as they bought into the passenger seat of their new truck and had been pushed away. Elon Musk has stated that Tesla goals to construct 250,000 Cybertrucks a 12 months beginning in 2025 regardless of speaking about how arduous will probably be to mass-produce, and extra lately a report stated the corporate is hitting battery manufacturing delays for the truck.

It’s not precisely a shock that Tesla’s This autumn 2023 outcomes don’t particularly break down all of its gross sales by mannequin. Of the 494,989 automobiles that Tesla produced within the fourth quarter, 476,777 of these had been the Mannequin 3 and Mannequin Y, whereas 18,212 are listed as “different fashions.” In earlier gross sales reviews Tesla has damaged out manufacturing and deliveries for the Mannequin S and Mannequin X individually from the three and Y — in Q3 2023 it produced 13,688 Fashions S and X, for instance. (The This autumn 2023 consequence reveals 484,507 vehicles delivered, of which 461,538 had been the three/Y and 22,969 had been “different.”)

Tesla dropped the costs of the S and X close to the tip of the 12 months, doubtless accounting for the 4,500-ish-unit uptick in “different automobile” manufacturing — there’s simply no manner various dozen buyer Cybertrucks have been produced. Tesla says will probably be releasing its 2023 monetary outcomes on January 24; hopefully that presentation will give us extra perception into what number of manufacturing Cybertrucks had been really constructed final 12 months.
