This year was not easy, because of the coronavirus pandemic, the company's factories were closed for more than a month. The Tesla Factory in Fremont produces the bulk of the vehicles that are delivered worldwide, so a quick return to full performance was vital.
Thanks to the tireless work of the company’s employees and organized management, despite the current situation, Tesla will once again surprise everyone with high sales figures.
Delivery centers are already filled with cars that continue to arrive.

Despite the fact that more than a third of the quarter, the factory in Fremont did not produce cars, delivery rates are expected to be high. Solving logistics problems was declared a top priority for Tesla's management.
According to preliminary information, only in North America, the company can deliver more than 40,000 vehicles. At the same time, a Chinese factory in 2Q was operating, which could lead to more than 35,000 delivered cars. Also, ships with cars have already reached the shores of Australia and Europe.
In 2Q 2019, Tesla delivered 95,200 vehicles and in early July we will find out if the company will be able to break its last record.
