Electric car manufacturer Tesla has broken the record from the previous quarter. Elon Musk’s company also presents top marks in production.
In the second quarter of 2021, Tesla sold more cars than ever before in three months. The stock exchange reacted calmly.
Tesla delivered more than 200,000 cars in the second quarter of 2021. However, the record quarter caused disillusionment on another side. Despite the record numbers, the share was unable to achieve any price gains. The analysts had expected even more vehicles to be delivered.
Tesla says it has delivered 201,250 cars. In the previous quarter, there were 184,800 units – and thus the old, now broken record.
Tesla only produced 2,340 units of the Model S premium sedan and the large SUV Model X in Q2 2021, although both series are currently undergoing a model change. In the last three months, 204,081 mid-range Model 3 and mid-range SUV Model Y were produced.
The bottom line is that Tesla produced 206,421 electric cars and 201,250 electric cars delivered in Q2 2021. In the first three months of the current year, there were 180,338 e-cars produced and 184,800 vehicles delivered. “Congratulations to the Tesla team on over 200,000 built & delivered cars in Q2, despite many challenges”, said company boss Elon Musk on Twitter.
Finally, in the announcement of the production and delivery results, Tesla pointed out, as usual, that the number of electric cars delivered was calculated “somewhat cautiously” due to cars still on the way to customers; the actual amount could therefore be even higher. The company will announce further details on the business results in the second quarter of 2021 with figures on, among other things, sales and profit/loss as well as a prospect of the expected development in the further course of the year.
