Despite breaking a company record for deliveries over the first quarter, Tesla shares are down on Monday as production totals still came in short of both analysts’ and CEO Elon Musk’s predictions.
In January, Musk said the company’s internal production potential was close to two million vehicles in 2023, up from 1.3 million in 2022. The company hoped to grow its deliveries by 50% in 2022 to 1.4 million while analysts wanted to see deliveries closer to 1.8 million.
Tesla delivered a record 422,875 electric cars to customers in the first quarter: 412,180 were Models 3 and Y, while 10,695 were Models S and X vehicles. The totals secured a 36% year-over-year increase and a 4% increase from the last quarter.
