Tesla pushes out 9,766 Model 3s in Q1 2018, sets ambitious Q2 goal
Tesla released its much-anticipated production numbers for the first quarter of 2018 this morning, and the results are mixed. The company produced 34,494 vehicles, an overall record for the electric vehicle company. But production numbers broken out by model leave something to be desired.
24,728 of the cars manufactured were Model S and Model X vehicles, down 3,592 from the 28,320 luxury vehicles that Tesla pushed out in Q4 2017.
That leaves us with Model 3 numbers: Tesla said it produced 9,766 Model 3 vehicles, up from an abysmal 2,425 it produced in Q4 2017. Tesla counts vehicles as “delivered” when all the paperwork has been done, so production and delivery numbers differ slightly. This quarter, Tesla delivered 8,180 vehicles, versus 1,550 delivered last quarter.
