Tesla delivered approximately 22,200 vehicles in Q4, of which 12,700 were Model S and 9,500 were Model X.

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.
