Tesla Delivers Record 97,000 Vehicles in Q3

Tesla has announced it delivered a record 97,000 Model 3, Model S and Model X electric vehicles in the third quarter.

The company’s investor’s note detailed 96,155 vehicles were produced in Q3. Tesla saw 87,048 vehicles produced in the previous quarter.

Despite the record number for Q3, the deliveries target fell short of analyst expectations of 95,000 to 100,000, and also short of CEO Elon Musk’s goal of 100,000 for the third quarter, according to a previously leaked email, as reported by Electrek.

There were 79,600 deliveries for Model 3 sedans to go with 17,400 combined deliveries Model S and Model X.

Earlier this month, Tesla confirmed its new V3 Superchargers were expanding internationally for the first time, along the Trans-Canada Highway.

The company also recently launched its V10 software update, still rolling out to Canadians.

Tesla will report Q3 financial earnings on October 30.
