Tesla announced this month that it has delivered 11,580 cars in Q3 of 2015. This includes the company's initial deliveries of Model X.
Tesla said that although it had a week of planned production shutdown, the delivery level represented a 49% increase over Q3 of 2014. It was also the sixth consecutive quarter of growth.

The company said in an announcement:
There may be small changes to this delivery count (usually well under 1%), as Tesla only counts a delivery if it is transferred to the end customer and all paperwork is correct
Also, this is only one measure of our financial performance and should not be relied on as an indicator of our quarterly financial results, which depend on a variety of factors, including the cost of sales, foreign exchange movements and mix of directly leased vehicles.
On Monday, Tesla announced the release date for its third quarter 2015 financial results. These will be reported on Tuesday, November 3 at 5:30pm Eastern Time. Along with the results, a Q3 2015 Shareholder Letter will be made available.
