Look at that growth! To recap, as reported by USA Today, "Tesla Motors said Sunday it broke the 50,000 mark in deliveries of its luxury electric vehicles last year. The figures were released ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that is sure to serve as a forum for others competing in its same arena... They show just how far ahead that Tesla has become compared to its competitors. The automaker says it delivered 50,580 vehicles for the year, including 17,400 in the fourth quarter. Showing that its efforts to ramp up production are paying off, fourth quarter deliveries were 48% higher that the past previous highest quarter ever. They were 75% higher than the same quarter a year ago... [and] 208 of the fourth-quarter deliveries were for its new Model X crossover. It actually made twice as many [Model X vehicles]... slated for delivery over the next three months."
