Tesla is making a big push with Model 3 to end Q1 2018 on strong note
According to reports, electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla will conclude the first quarter of 2018 on a strong note, thanks to a big push being made by the company with Model 3 deliveries this week. Tesla has been lagging behind Model 3 deliveries and stock market analysts have been concerned about the company’s ability to deliver on its promises.
With just about a week left for the conclusion of the January-March quarter of 2018, Tesla has recently been recording a notable increase in terms of registration of new vehicle identification numbers (VINs) for Model 3. The increase is indicative of the fact that the current Model 3 production by Tesla is hovering around the ‘2,000 units per week’ mark.
Tesla’s ongoing attempts to increasingly register new VINs for Model 3 are evident from more specific figures which show that the number of new VINs registered by the company this month has increased from 12,000 VINs to 18,000 VINs.
Along with the growing rate at which new VINs for Model 3 are being registered by Tesla of late, a record number of Model 3 buyers have also reported that the deliveries of their vehicles are scheduled for the current week.
As a result of its big Model 3 push, it is being projected that Tesla will finish the 2018 first-quarter strong, with a record number of Model 3 vehicles, even though the deliveries of Model S and Model X will probably witness a drop quarter-on-quarter.
