American electric automobile giant Tesla has reportedly produced and delivered over 200,000 vehicles in the second quarter this year. 

Elon Musk-owned EV maker is said to have produced 206,421 vehicles and delivered 201,250 vehicles between April and June 2021.

In a statement to the public, Tesla lauded its employees stating that “Our teams have done an outstanding job navigating through the global supply chain and logistics challenges.” Its CEO, Mr. Musk shared his compliments on microblogging site Twitter by sharing, “Congrats Tesla Team on over 200,000 cars built & delivered in Q2, despite many challenges!!”

The electric carmaker had set a new operational milestone early this year when it delivered 185,000 vehicles globally in the first quarter.

Earlier, Mr. Musk had written to his employees commenting that while the automaker has been “executing well,” they will have to “go all out” as Tesla reached at the end of the quarter. Mr. Musk had warned that the electric carmaker was facing some significant supply chain challenges during the quarter.

Earlier in June, the Palo Alto, California-based EV and clean energy company firm had unveiled its latest offering, the new Model S Plaid at a delivery event in Fremont. The sedan fetches a starting price of $130,000 after a recent $10,000 price hike.
