Tesla (TSLA) has launched its third-quarter supply and manufacturing outcomes, confirming that it delivered a report variety of electrical automobiles.

Expectations have been form of all over this quarter.

Only a few weeks in the past, the Wall Road consensus from Tesla analysts was simply over 120,000 deliveries, however the expectations rose to roughly 140,000 deliveries over the past week of the quarter.

Immediately, Tesla launched its supply and manufacturing outcomes, confirming the manufacturing of greater than 145,000 autos and the supply of virtually 140,000 autos.

Tesla remains to be solely breaking down deliveries and manufacturing between Mannequin S/X and Mannequin 3/Y as an alternative of by each car program like most different automakers:

  Manufacturing Deliveries Topic to lease accounting
Mannequin S/X 16,992 15,200 13%
Mannequin 3/Y 128,044 124,100 7%
Whole 145,036 139,300 7%

The whole variety of deliveries is an enormous quarter-to-quarter bounce in comparison with the 90,000 autos Tesla delivered final quarter.

It’s additionally a brand new all-time supply report for Tesla — beating its This fall 2019 deliveries of 112,000 electrical autos.

Manufacturing can be up from 82,000 autos final quarter because the shutdown of Fremont manufacturing unit was nonetheless affecting manufacturing capability.

Tesla now appears to have totally recovered its manufacturing capability from pre-pandemic and is including some extra.

In its quarterly supply and manufacturing quantity launch, Tesla doesn’t break down manufacturing by manufacturing unit, however the info needs to be launched throughout its Q3 earnings later this month.

Tesla has additionally confirmed that new car stock has declined when it comes to days of gross sales final quarter:

By way of days of gross sales, new car stock declined additional in Q3 as we proceed to enhance our supply effectivity.

Tesla’s inventory (TSLA) is down 4% in pre-market buying and selling, however it could’t actually be attributed to the supply outcomes because it was down by greater than 5% earlier because the broader market fell on the information that President Donald Trump has examined optimistic for COVID-19.

Electrek’s Take

This can be a actually spectacular outcome particularly when in comparison with the efficiency of different automakers.

Whereas the auto trade is recovering remarkably quick from the pandemic, there’s no different automaker like Tesla who is just not solely recovering but additionally rising gross sales considerably.

Tesla delivered 97,000 autos in Q3 2019. That’s a 43 year-over-year improve. Unbelievable..

It now looks like the fitting approach to interpret Elon’s email that record deliveries for the quarter were achievable 10 days earlier than the tip of the quarter and the following congratulation to Tesla staff meant that the aim was achieved final weekend.

As we reported earlier this week, Tesla achieved a record delivery volume throughout its end-of-quarter push.

It seems like Tesla achieved the aim with 4 or 5 extra days of deliveries and with the brand new report tempo of each day deliveries, they have been ready so as to add ~27,000 automobiles.

It’s truly not the primary time that Tesla needed to ship ~30,000 automobiles throughout its end-of-the-quarter, however on this case, it seems like Tesla might need delivered 60,000 automobiles over the past two weeks of the quarter.

I can’t wait to get extra information from Europe and China for September to get a greater thought of the way it performed out.
