After a sluggish start to the year, Tesla declared this week that it delivered and made a record number of vehicles in the Q2 of this year. The electric auto manufacturer created 87,048 cars in the quarter, and delivered “almost 95,200,” after having concluded the Q1 of the year with some 10,000 vehicles tagged as “in shipment.”
Exactly 72,531 cars of the total vehicles manufactured were Model 3s. Tesla also delivered 77,550 Model 3s in the same timeframe.
Those figures were more than the expectations of industry experts, many of whom anticipated nearer to 91,000 deliveries this last quarter. The earlier best quarter of Tesla came at the end of last year, in the middle of the firm’s mad efforts to meet its own sky-high objectives for the year.
News of quarterly performance by Tesla follows at a time where the firm lost 3 high-ranking officials in the period of a week. One of the firm’s production VPs, Peter Hochholdinger, was lately appointed away by EV startup Lucid Motors. Steve MacManus (VP of engineering) departed Tesla after 4 Years with the firm, and Jan Oehmicke (VP of Tesla Europe) also exited the firm the same week. (Executive exits have been a shocking factor for a while now for Tesla.)
On a related note, Elon Musk earlier was present at E3 next to Todd Howard (executive producer at Bethesda Studios) to declare that Fallout Shelter will be launching for Tesla cars. The broadly popular game is already accessible on just about every other system you can imagine, so a shift to the in-car entertainment systems by Tesla appears about correct. It will be joined by Beach Buggy Racing 2, together with earlier declared games comprising indie darling Cuphead and classic Atari games.
To play eclectic series of games on Tesla, consumers will have to keep their vehicle in park—which is possibly for the best for everybody.
