Tesla entrega 100.000 carros em 2017
January 5, 2018 -- A Tesla entregou 29.870 veículos no quarto trimestre de 2017, um
recorde, dos quais 15.200 foram Modelo S e 13.120 Modelo X, mas
apenas 1.550 foram Modelo 3s comercializados a $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.
