Here’s a press release:
PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In Q4, Tesla delivered 29,870 vehicles, of that 15,200 were Model S, 13,120 were Model X, and 1,550 were Model 3. This was once again a all-time best entertain for sum Model S and X deliveries, representing a 27% boost over Q4 2016, and a 9% boost over Q3 2017, a prior best quarter.
In total, we exceeded a formerly announced superintendence by delivering 101,312 Model S and X vehicles in 2017. This was a 33% boost over 2016.
In further to Q4 deliveries, about 2,520 Model S and X vehicles and 860 Model 3 vehicles were in movement to business during a finish of a quarter. These will be counted as deliveries in Q1 2018.
Q4 prolongation totaled 24,565 vehicles, of that 2,425 were Model 3. As we formerly indicated, we somewhat reduced Model S and X prolongation in Q4 given of a reallocation of some of a prolongation workforce towards Model 3 production, that also caused inventory to decline.
During Q4, we done vital swell addressing Model 3 prolongation bottlenecks, with a prolongation rate augmenting significantly towards a finish of a quarter. In the final 7 operative days of a quarter, we done 793 Model 3’s, and in the final few days, we strike a production rate on any of a prolongation lines that extrapolates to over 1,000 Model 3’s per week. As a outcome of a poignant expansion in a prolongation rate, we done as many Model 3’s given Dec 9th as we did in a some-more than 4 months of Model 3 prolongation adult to that point. This is because we were not means to broach many of these cars during a holiday season, usually before a entertain ended. Model 3 deliveries to non-employee business are now accelerating rapidly, and we’re assured a business will adore them.
As we continue to concentration on peculiarity and potency rather than simply pulling for a top probable volume in a shortest duration of time, we design to have a somewhat some-more light ramp by Q1, expected finale a entertain during a weekly rate of about 2,500 Model 3 vehicles. We intend to grasp a 5,000 per week miracle by a finish of Q2.
We’re really beholden to everybody during Tesla who has poured their heart and essence into assisting with a Model 3 ramp and formulating a swell we are seeing. We’re also really elegant of a Model 3 customers, who continue to hang by us while patiently watchful for their cars.
Our smoothness count should be noticed as somewhat conservative, as we usually count a automobile as delivered if it is eliminated to a patron and all paperwork is correct. Final numbers could change by adult to 0.5%. Tesla car deliveries paint usually one magnitude of a company’s financial opening and should not be relied on as an indicator of quarterly financial results, that count on a accumulation of factors, including a cost of sales, unfamiliar sell movements and brew of directly leased vehicles.
