Tesla announced that it’s delivered a new record number of electric cars in its third quarter, according to Reuters, “beating Wall Street estimates after Chief Executive Elon Musk asked staff to ‘go super hardcore’ to make a quarter-end delivery push.”

Slashdot reader McGruber shared Reuters’ report:

Tesla has weathered the chip crisis better than rivals, with its overall deliveries surging 20% in the July to September period from its previous record in the second quarter, marking the sixth consecutive quarter-on-quarter gains… Tesla delivered 241,300 vehicles globally in the July to September quarter, up 73% from a year earlier. Analysts had expected the electric-car maker to deliver 229,242 vehicles, according to Refinitiv data.
General Motors, Honda and some of its bigger rivals posted declines in U.S. sales in the third quarter, hit by a prolonged chip shortage. GM’s third-quarter U.S. sales fell nearly 33% to its lowest level in more than a decade.
