Indeed, for Tesla’s fans, there is nothing more fascinating and important than cars and Elon Musk!
After all, Tesla never fails to shock you! According to the company’s recent claims, it was able to deliver 90,650
vehicles in the last quarter even though its Fremont, California factory had to
be partially shut due to the pandemic. This number is clearly surprising
because Wall Street analysts had actually predicted that the electric automaker
would only deliver 72,000 vehicles in the last three months.
The company is clearly
on track because this isn’t the first time its delivery numbers have surprised
us. In the first quarter of 2020, it was able to deliver 88,050 vehicles and in
the last quarter of 2019, the company shipped approximately 112,000 vehicles!
Tesla reveals that it delivered around 80,050 Model 3 and Y vehicles and 10,600 Model S and X
In a press release,
Tesla said: “While our main factory in
Fremont was shut down for much of the quarter, we have successfully ramped
production back to prior levels.”
The numbers were
disclosed the day after Elon Musk sent out an email congratulating and
commending his employees for showing “amazing”
execution “in such difficult times.”
Furthermore, Musk has
predicted that the company will soar higher in the second quarter and break
even more records in July.
It can’t be forgotten
that Tesla was under fire when it refused to follow SOPs in the beginning
period of this pandemic. Musk has decided to resume production and defy the
health crisis faced by the country.
He was accused of
putting the public health at risk by reopening his factory even before he was
authorized to do so. In fact, when he tried to open a factory in Texas, he
faced major opposition from the locals. In addition to this, Tesla also faced a minor backlash as the earlier version of the Model S battery pack design was
slightly flawed and prone to coolant leaks.
