Now that we've seen Tesla's actual Q2 2020 production and delivery numbers, the next thing Tesla bears and bulls turn their attention to is trying to determine what the financial impact will look like, and will Tesla make money

Well, I created my own best and worst case scenarios for production and deliveries, used what I could find and a number of estimates to nail down numbers that I felt were accurate, and this morning Tesla released the actual numbers. In that last article (mostly Tesla's press release), Zach noted that the numbers would probably be a reason for some of our authors to produce long pieces on them, and

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 are Tesla's production and delivery figures for Q2

Six days ago, news broke that Elon Musk had sent an email to Tesla employees about going all out for the final week of the quarter to ensure a "good outcome." Since that point, debate has raged by exactly what was meant by that statement. Is Tesla looking to surprise Wall Street, which has been anticipating around 60,000–70,000 total cars moved

The one millionth Tesla could be delivered to a customer any day now. How should the company mark the occasion?

Tesla has yet again broken some records. This time it broke its previous 1st quarter production and delivery records. With 102,672 vehicles produced and 88,400 delivered, despite both its Fremont factory and its Shanghai Gigafactory being shut down for periods of time last quarter due to the coronavirus

The Tesla milestone of 1,000,000 cars created a bit of speculation about Tesla production volume in Q1. As is often the case, some are better at the speculation than others. The best I came across was the InsideEVs estimate by Mark Kane. Therefore, I am going to shamelessly use some of his numbers

Elon Musk revealed on Monday that Tesla has just produced its millionth vehicle, a red Tesla Model

Barron's noted on January 7th, 2020, that Tesla had become the most valuable auto company in the history of America. Let me repeat: Not just currently. We are talking about the most valuable American auto company since America was born. Congratulations to Elon, Tesla, and the team for unlocking this achievement!

Every quarter, there are a couple of days of suspense waiting for the Tesla production and delivery numbers. They have in most quarters no importance whatsoever. Not reaching the guidance by even 0.1% is considered a deadly sin on Wall Street, though

Tesla end-of-quarter rush is unavoidable, inevitable, inescapable, necessary, unescapable, needed.
We all hate Tesla's end-of-quarter delivery hell. It is the price Tesla pays for its direct sales model. Other companies also try to score some extra sales at the end of a period, but no one gets into a frenzy like Tesla

One year ago, when Tesla's 3rd quarter 2018 production and delivery data came out, many Tesla critics were stunned — absolutely stunned. They had been saying for months that Tesla absolutely could not produce the number of cars Tesla ended up producing. They also said with great conviction that Tesla absolutely could not show a profit in the 3rd quarter, or any quarter. Tesla blew the criticisms out of the water with production, deliveries, and a solid profit

Tesla's 3rd quarter production and delivery numbers — early estimates from the company, at least — are out. We'll have more to report shortly on the news, but for now, here are three CleanTechnica charts (two static and one interactive multi-chart visualization) of Tesla's quarterly deliveries since late 2012 and a portion of Tesla's press release about the news

An internal email to employees dated July 9 from Jerome Guillen, President of Automotive at Tesla, said the company is “making preparations” to raise output at its factory in Fremont, California (where we recently interviewed him). "While we can’t be too specific in this email, I know you will be delighted with the upcoming developments," Guillen said, according to a report by Bloomberg, which claims to have seen a copy of the email

The total production and delivery numbers are out for Q2 and they are stronger than anyone dared hope. Here's hoping the short sellers choke on the numbers.

I have to eat crow. That is the civilized way to say it. What I wrote was completely off. It was logical, believable, and wrong. After submitting it, I thought I should have included that famous line about complex problems having simple answers that are completely wrong — a point I did prove. Another way of saying it, it was

It's time for quarterly Tesla production and delivery numbers — or almost time for them. But don't mistake either of these for sales.

Editor's note: Contrary to some core points in the article below, Elon Musk has said on a few occasions that Tesla's more or less continuous profitability will not slow Tesla's growth — that it's still growing as fast as it can. We also have a Tesla financials deep dive coming in a couple of days that should help anyone interested in that aspect of the business to walk through the numbers in detail yet hopefully without getting lost if you don't have an MBA or accounting degree. In any case, it is a common concern among Tesla supporters that a focus on achieving quarterly profits could slow Tesla's overall growth. This author chimes in on that topic through a bit more than 1,000 words

2108 has been a real breakout year for Tesla. It has gone from being a niche producer of electric vehicles (EVs) to becoming the dominant seller of not just EVs, but of all luxury cars too.
The surprise to many is that Tesla also dominated the overall sedan market by having the top selling car in the US in terms of revenue!

This may be the biggest year of growth from one company in the history of the auto industry
