Tesla sold 367,500 cars in 2019, a new record for the company, according to figures published to its website early on Friday morning. While that’s on the low end of the 360,000 to 400,000 vehicle estimate the company offered up at the beginning of 2019, the Silicon Valley automaker still delivered more cars in 2019 than it did in the previous two years combined, all thanks to the popularity of the Model 3 sedan.

The new delivery record helps cap what was something of a banner year for Tesla. The company unveiled two new prototypes, with the Model Y compact SUV breaking cover in March and the stark, polarizing, and meme-worthy Cybertruck being revealed in November. Tesla also both broke ground on and officially opened a factory in China, setting it up to make and sell Model 3s locally in the country moving forward, which will help the company duck transport costs and import taxes.
