vehicle deliveries hit a new record in the most recent quarter, accelerating the Silicon Valley car maker’s recovery after sales slowed during the height of the pandemic.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company on Friday said it sold 139,300 vehicles in the quarter ended Sept. 30, slightly ahead of the 137,000 deliveries analysts surveyed by FactSet expected and 44% above the prior-year figure. The figure topped the previous high of 112,000 vehicle handovers Tesla achieved in the final quarter of 2019, the last not impacted by the pandemic.

The company in January said it aimed to deliver more than 500,000 vehicles in 2020, an increase of
