The electric automaker again beats it’s skeptics and delivers over 140,000 autos in the 3rd quarter.
Tesla keeps moving forward aside it’s critics who thought it was impossible to produce a mass produced electric vehicle, Musk has proved them wrong time after time.
This figure thwarts estimates that only 120,000 to 134,000 autos would be delivered to it’s customers, thus it will truly any quell any fears that Tesla couldn’t perform in production numbers and it did. Tesla’s official estimates are divided into two categories: the Model S & Model X and the Model 3 and Model Y.
The Model Y was the Tesla’s best selling vehicle along with Tesla delivering 124,100 Model 3 and Model Y autos last quarter. The Model S and Model X, the automaker delivered a paltry 15,200.
In August, Tesla saw rise in sales recovering mainly from that slump, driven by sales in China. Tesla sold nearly 12,000 vehicles in China that month, following earlier price cuts and a production ramp up there.
Tesla’s Shanghai factory has the amazing capacity to produce up to 200,000 vehicles a year, the company’s vice president of foreign affairs in China, Grace Tao, said in a press interview with Xinhua News Agency in May.
With possible excess capacity at the Shanghai factory, Tesla now plans to move forward in exporting some of its made-in-China vehicles to Europe. In the past, it has exported only cars it produced in the U.S. to Europe.
In in July, Tesla had cut the price of its Model Y crossover SUV by $3,000 and canceled a lower-priced standard-range version of the SUV.
