Palo Alto’s Tesla beats supply chain woes with record fourth-quarter deliveries

On Sunday, Tesla Inc., the Palo Alto, California-headquartered e-vehicle industry trailblazer had reported record deliveries over fourth-quarter of 2021, wildly beating a Wall Street estimate as the world’s most valuable automaker had reportedly surmounted a global-scale supply chain constrain by spurring up productions at its China Gigafactory despite steep competition with home-grown manufacturers alongside an exacerbation in regulatory hindrances.

On top of that, Tesla Inc., led by the world’s richest man to-date Elon Musk having had a net asset worth of around $266 billion as of December 31, 2021, according to a Time Magazine report, had logged a sixth straight quarter of record deliveries over Q4, 2021.

Followed by the statement, Tesla Chief Musk wrote in a tweet, “Great work by Tesla team worldwide!” as the Californian automaker had ramped up productions at its China Gigafactory as beforementioned despite mounting complaints on consumers’ safety.

Apart from that, latest Tesla Inc statement that underscored an ameliorating fourth quarter delivery despite a scuffling global auto industry what had reportedly been suffering from a sharp drop in chip supplies, came against the backdrop of an October remark from Tesla Chief Elon Musk, while the charismatic talisman had been quoted saying that his e-vehicle venture would be “able to maintain an annual growth rate of more than 50 per cent for quite a while.
