Tesla’s fourth-quarter shipments increased 18% to 405,000, falling short of the average estimate of 418,000. The number increased Tesla’s total deliveries for 2022 to 1.3 million units, an increase of 40% year-over-year but below the company’s projection of 50%.

Tesla said in a separate statement that it will conduct its Investor Day on March 1 at its Texas Gigafactory, where it will likely reveal long-term growth and capital allocation plans. In addition, the manufacturer intimated that a “generation 3” platform might be shown to investors during the event.
