Tesla [TSLA] 2nd Quarter Production & Delivery Numbers Are …
July 2nd, 2020 by Zachary Shahan
Tesla has published its Q2 2020 production and delivery numbers. (Look’s like CleanTechnica‘s Frugal Moogal nailed it.) We’ll have more on this later, but here’s Tesla’s short press release following my updated chart on quarterly deliveries (interactive chart on the bottom):
Palo Alto, California — In the second quarter, we produced over 82,000 vehicles and delivered approximately 90,650 vehicles.
While our main factory in Fremont was shut down for much of the quarter, we have successfully ramped production back to prior levels.
Our net income and cash flow results will be announced along with the rest of our financial performance when we announce Q2 earnings. Our delivery count should be viewed as slightly conservative, as we only count a car as delivered if it is transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct. Final numbers could vary by up to 0.5% or more. Tesla vehicle deliveries represent only one measure of the company’s financial performance and should not be relied on as an indicator of quarterly financial results, which depend on a variety of factors, including the cost of sales, foreign exchange movements and mix of directly leased vehicles.
Again, stay tuned for more commentary on these numbers later. I’m sure several authors will feel compelled to produce long pieces on them. 😀
