Tesla levert 100.000 auto's in 2017
January 5, 2018 -- Tesla leverde in het vierde kwartaal van 2017 een record-aantal van 29.870 auto’s, waarvan 15.200 Model S en 13.120 Model X, maar slechts 1.550 van het voor massamarkt bedoelde Model 3s van $35.000 (€29.000)
On the production side, Tesla is facing bottlenecks that have forced CEO Elon Musk to dial back his own mass manufacturing goals. Musk had previously predicted that Model 3 production could be ramped up to 20,000 cars per month by December.
However, Tesla appears to have removed some bottlenecks. The company produced 793 (almost a third) of the 2,425 fourth quarter Model 3s in the last seven working days of December.
Tesla produced more vehicles than in previous quarters. It also surpassed its 100,000-vehicle goal for 2017. Tesla delivered 103,082 cars in 2017, a 36% increase over 2016.
