Yesterday Tesla announced that it produced 28,386 Model 3 electric vehicles in the second quarter of this year, three times the amount that it did in the first quarter, but it still has a long list of reservations to fill. Tesla managed to deliver 11,166 Model 3s in the second quarter, but by the end of the quarter Tesla confirmed that it still had approximately 420,000 reservations to fill.
Tesla expects that number to grow even higher, “When we start to provide customers an opportunity to see and test drive the car at their local store, we expect that our orders will grow faster than our production rate.”
Last week Tesla managed to build 5,031 Model 3s – its best production week yet. Tesla expects to increase production to 6,000 Model 3s per week by late next month.
