I am comparing to the previous 3 quarter end deliveries, which were less than current Dec numbers.
If Norway is like the USA in this respect, Q4 is the most active car sales quarter of the year, and that is not just Tesla.
I also get the impression that consumer confidence is rising now that Covid vaccines are starting to roll out.
@ DougWantsALeaf, also there was the covid lockdown of various places around the world, including the Fremont factory, where they couldn't build any cars for a month. Despite Dec shaping up to look stellar, don't be surprised when Jan and Feb numbers look "low". And don't be surprised by the media reports that demand has been met and buyers are looking for newer models from legacy automakers. The more you learn about how news reports are re-cycled to suit the narrative of the quarter, the more jaded you'll become of the news. All that matters is:
- Does the model 3 meet your needs at the price you'd like to spend? If so, get it. If not, get something that does meet your needs.
Edit: Tesla will be supple constrained until all 4 factories are fully up and running.
