The new 8.1 software update harnesses hardware included in the latest Model S and Model X vehicles: eight cameras for 360-degree visibility at up to 250 meters; 12 ultrasonic sensors for detection of hard and soft objects; forward-facing radar capable of seeing through heavy rain, fog, dust, and cars.

Tesla said that even though those sales were counted toward 2016, the deliveries were not because the customers did not physically take possession of their cars.

After almost three years of volatile but stalled price action, Tesla shares are probably due to make a meaningful move. Using data provided from various analysts, shares of Tesla Motors, Inc.

The fourth-quarter deliveries figure is a preliminary number that may change slightly in February when the company reports earnings for the period.

Tesla delivered approximately 22,200 vehicles in Q4, of which 12,700 were Model S and 9,500 were Model X. When added to the rest of the year, total 2016 deliveries were approximately 76,230.Our Q4 delivery count should be viewed as slightly conservative, as we only count a auto as delivered if it is transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct. Tesla is giving investors a tour of its Gigafactory on Wednesday morning. This was an increase of 64 percent from 2015.

Of the 83,922 vehicles that Tesla produced previous year, the electric carmaker delivered 76,230 vehicles.

Superchargers refill the battery cells in Tesla models in a couple of minutes instead of hours like regular electric vehicle charging stations. Even so, it would be good to have a baseline cost just so you know what you can expect to pay in case you order a Tesla vehicle after the January 15 deadline. It said it also had about 6,450 vehicles in transit to customers at the end of the quarter which will count as first quarter 2017 deliveries.

The automaker said that "short-term production challenges" caused issues which weighted deliveries towards the end of the quarter and forced the company to miss its already-trimmed projections. Unfortunately that asterisk indicates a self-inflicted wound, one that Tesla was aware was incoming when it estimated deliveries last quarter, so we can't give them a full pass on it.

Unfortunately, there still just wasn't enough days left in the year to get all those produced, but delayed, EVs to customers in time during the last month of the year.

Johnson assumes zero Model 3 deliveries in 2017.
