Tesla delivered just 208 Model X SUVs last year

Tesla’s Model X finally launched in September last year, two years after it was initially scheduled for release. Since then, Elon Musk’s company has revealed only a small number of people have actually had their cars delivered.

In the fourth quarter of 2015, 208 Model X cars were delivered to customers, with 507 vehicles built over the quarter. The rest of those will be delivered at the start of Q1 2016.

That extremely low number isn’t exactly shocking though, with Tesla warning that deliveries could be delayed due to the production line being ramped up. At launch, Musk said Tesla was building just five Model X’s a week, however that number has now jumped to 238 weekly.

The company as a whole had a cracking 2015, delivering 50,000 vehicles for the first time in its history. The Model S sales in Q4 2014 were up 48% over Q3 and 75% year on year, with Tesla putting 17,192 of the cars in customers’ driveways.

Tesla has a company policy to not officially share individual region sales details, however a quick look at the registration numbers in each state reveals Tesla has so far delivered at least 600 Model S cars in Australia since it launched locally in late 2014.
