For long people have speculated whether
Tesla will be able to sustain itself in the automotive industry, given all the
lawsuits and other complications the company has had to face in the recent
years. But lo and behold, it seems that Tesla has finally emerged victorious
despite all, and they have a record number of sales to show for that.
Elon Musk had pointed to this in May, and
now in the second quarter of 2019 Tesla has delivered a record 95,200 cars. The
number is significantly more from the company’s own milestone of delivering
90,700 vehicles in a single quarter.
This has come as a piece of happy news for Tesla,
especially after experiencing a first bad quarter, during which the company
faced difficulties in deliveries and as a result incurred massive losses.
The numbers show that Tesla’s deliveries of
vehicles outweighed the number of cars that were produced in the second quarter,
along with which there are many vehicles that are still in transit, the
deliveries of which will spill into the third quarter.
Tesla’s Model 3 has been a major favourite
of consumers, with taking a lead by 77,500 units that were delivered. Likewise,
Model S and X did well too, with 17,560 units delivered.
All these numbers go to show that there is
a consumer preference for the vehicles created by Tesla. Many consumers are
inclined to pay for a luxury electric sedan/SUV, and the obvious demand and the popularity of Model 3 indicate that the company may experience a rise in sales.
The company previously stated that it
expects to deliver around 360,000 to 400,000 vehicles in 2019. Judging by the
recent figures and an upward trend in sales experienced by the company the goal
does seem attainable.
