Tesla Inc on Friday posted record deliveries for the January to March quarter, beating Wall Street estimates, as solid demand for less expensive models offset the impact of a global shortage of parts.
Axar.az reports that this was reported by foreign media.
“We are encouraged by the strong reception of the Model Y in China and are quickly progressing to full production capacity,” Tesla said in a statement.
“The new Model S and Model X have also been exceptionally well received ... and we are in the early stages of ramping production,” it added.
Tesla’s Shanghai factory started production of the Model Y late last year in the key market where it already produces Model 3 sedans. In February, Tesla’s China sales jumped from the previous month even as demand usually falls during China’s Lunar New Year holidays which occurred that month.
The electric-car maker delivered 184,800 vehicles globally during the first quarter, above estimates of 177,822 vehicles, according to Refinitiv data.
This also exceeds its previous record of 180,570 achieved last quarter.
In February, Tesla suspended its California plant for two days due to “parts shortages.”
