Tesla delivered nearly 97,000 EVs in 2019 Q3, narrowly missed 100,000 deliveries target
US electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors failed to achieve its targeted 100,000 deliveries for the 2019 third quarter by a narrow margin. The company delivered nearly 97,000 electric vehicles (EVs) during the third quarter, thereby achieving a new quarterly deliveries record.
The approximately 97,000 EVs delivered by Tesla in the 2019 third quarter (July-September) included 79,600 units of Model 3, along with a combined total of 17,400 units of the Model S and Model X electric cars.
The 97,000 EV deliveries recorded by Tesla in the 2019 third quarter marked a nearly 2% quarter-on-quarter increase for the company. In the 2019 second quarter, Tesla had delivered a total of 95,356 units of its Model 3, Model S and Model X vehicles.
Tesla’s third-quarter EV delivery volume was counterbalanced by production figures of 96,155 units during the quarter. In comparison, the number of EVs which the company had produced in the second quarter was much lower, at 87,048 units.
The EV production and deliveries figures recorded by Tesla in the 2019 third quarter represent the highest numbers recorded by the company thus far, though it has narrowly missed the 100,000 EV deliveries target in the third quarter. Nonetheless, the company evidently remains optimistic of achieving its targeted 360,000 to 400,000 deliveries in the year 2019 as a whole.
