Electric carmaker, Tesla has recorded surging profits, despite shortages of semiconductor chips and congestion at ports hindering production.

Billionaire entrepreneur, Elon Musk revealed the records on Monday, stating that profits soared off the back of strong sales.

Tesla said it delivered 200,000 cars to customers at the same period, adding that public support for greener cars was greater than ever.

Tesla in an update to investors on Monday said, “Public sentiment and support for electric vehicles seems to be at a never-before-seen inflection point.

“We continue to work hard to drive down costs and increase our rate of production to make electric vehicles accessible to as many people as possible.”

Sales rose to $12bn (£8.6bn) three months to the end of June, up from $6bn a year ago, when its US factory was shut down.
