The lede:  After having its operations impacted by the coronavirus through the early and middle parts of the year, Tesla has posted a new quarterly record for deliveries. The automaker shipped just under 140,000 cars in the third quarter of 2020, boding well for its post-pandemic recovery and smashing its previous record set last year.

Like many business around the world, Tesla had to shut down elements of its operations as the coronavirus pandemic took hold in early 2020, closing down parts of its California factory. This led to a second quarter delivery figure of 90,650, well down on the record of 112,000 set in the final quarter of 2019, and just up from its first quarter effort of 88,400.
