Electric carmaker Tesla reported third-quarter delivery figure that exceeded expectations. However, the number might still not be too optimistic with respect to its full year target of 500,000 .
Tesla said deliveries for the three months ending in September came in at a record 139,300, just above the Street forecast. Production increased to 145,000 vehicles.
In the prior quarter, delivery was 90,650 . That means, Tesla needs to shift a record 166,000 cars over the last quarter of the year to meet its 2020 target of 500,000.
Major contributor to the latest quarter’s deliveries were Tesla's Model 3 sedan and Model Y SUVs with 128,044 units produced, and 124,100 delivered. Age part can be attributed to the company’s improving demand in China and the its production in its new Shanghai factory.
"In terms of days of sales, new vehicle inventory declined further in Q3 as we continue to improve our delivery efficiency," Tesla said.
The carmaker also mentioned that its delivery figures should be viewed as “slightly conservative, as we only count a car as delivered if it is transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct."
