Tesla shares reached their new peak on Thursday jumping 7.95% to a price of $1208.66. The manufacturer of electric cars Tesla was rated as the world most expensive automaker (in terms of market capitalization), overtaking the world leader Toyota Motor.
Since the beginning of the year, Tesla shares have risen by 189% having climbed 166% over the past three months.
On Thursday, Tesla reported that it has delivered 90,650 electric vehicles to customers in the three months. They were out of cars on June 30 (the second quarter), significantly surpassing Wall Street rates of 72,000 vehicles. The result exceeded even the broadest set of analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg whose average expectations were 83,000 delivered Tesla cars in the second quarter.
Tesla sales are surprising as they turned out much better than most competitors reached.
Tesla’s deliveries fell by only 4.8% compared to the same quarter last year. Of the 90,650 combined shipments, 80,050 were the most affordable Model 3 sedans and Model Y SUVs, while 10,600 were older and more expensive Model S and X cars. Unfortunately, Tesla did not provide more details on the number of Model Y cars and delivery classification by geographical regions.
In the second quarter, Tesla made 82,272 cars, including 75,496 Model 3 and Model Y cars and only 6,326 Model S and X ones. It is unknown how many of them were produced at the largest American plant in Fremont and a new plant in Shanghai.
Production volume in the 2nd quarter was lower than 102,672 cars produced by Tesla in the 1st one, and lower than 87,048 cars produced in the 2nd quarter in 2019.
The decline in production was due to the temporary shut down of the company’s main plant in Fremont for several weeks. Employees of the plant began to get back to work on May 11 at the request of Tesla CEO Elon Musk who opposed the shut-down of the plant by Alameda County authorities, suing and threatening to move headquarters and new production programs to Nevada or Texas.
Among the steps positively assessed by analysts were the reduction of prices and intentions to open new plants. To increase demand for its electric vehicles, Tesla significantly reduced prices in the second quarter in North America and China. Moreover, the media revealed information about Tesla’s plans to create a battery complex in Fremont and build a new car plant for the production of Cybertruck and Model Y in Austin, Texas.
According to China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the company received positive news from China where in May sales resumed to 11,095 Model 3 vehicles made in Shanghai.
At the same time, in the US, Tesla has also faced two new federal investigations: one related to the failure of the touch screen in vehicles, the other one with the battery cooling system, a problem that could pose a fire hazard in the Model S.
Be that as it may, Tesla’s sales, which exceed estimates and industry averages, speak for themselves. These figures give encouraging cues for the forthcoming financial report expected on July 22. Tesla had reported profit for the previous three quarters.
Tesla is recalling about 50,000 Model S and Model X cars manufactured in the United States in different years and imported to China due to the identified suspension problems. This was reported on its website by the Chinese State Administration of Market Regulation. According to the statement of the Chinese regulator, almost 30 thousand Model […]
