According to leaks Elon Musk held a company-wide call with Tesla employees. And on the call, he said Tesla will produce 1 million vehicles in 2021 but 2022 should be even better. (See https://www.torquenews.com/11826/elon-musk-call-employees-said-tesla-will-produce-1-million-cars-2021)

Tesla hasn’t put out a specific production and delivery guideline for the fiscal year 2021. Elon Musk has said on multiple occasions he plans for Tesla to grow production capacity by around 50 percent for the foreseeable future.

However, “for 2021 Tesla said the company was planning to grow production capacity by more than 50%,” writes Torque News Tesla reporter Tinsae Aregay. But, Tesla didn’t give an exact number for what the expected production capacity increase will be.

Now we might have more information on what Tesla meant by growing faster than 50% this year. Sawyer Merritt. a Tesla enthusiast and shareholder says he has heard from multiple sources inside Tesla that Elon Musk held a company-wide call with employees.

And during the call Musk said, “Tesla could produce and deliver 1 million cars this year”. If this comes true it will be a 100% growth in Tesla’s production capacity. Musk also added Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory was expanding a lot and that 2022 should be even better.

“I have been told by a few sources that Elon Musk held a company wide call today for Tesla. It was mostly a 2020 review, but a few interesting tidbits were said by Elon. He said that the FSD subscription should be available in 6 weeks. Elon also said there was a chance that Tesla could produce and deliver 1 Million cars this year. He also said Giga Shanghai was expanding a lot and rounded it off by saying this year will be great and 2022 should be even better,” wrote Merritt.

Merritt also notes that while we have heard some of these things before, this is the first time he has heard some of the them come directly from Elon. “Either way, exciting things to hear and it should be a great year,” he writes.

These numbers might not be too surprising given Tesla has already said it has an installed annual production capacity of 1.05 million vehicles a year. That’s 100,000 Model S & X, 500,000 Model 3/Y in Fremont California, and 450,000 Model 3/Y in Giga Shanghai.

Tesla’s production goal may be even higher in 2022.
