Tesla: Delivery record in Q4, but Model 3 lacks behind

Tesla’s Q4 report shows a delivery record, but proves also that the Model 3 is still clearly lacking behind. Thus, 29,870 Tesla cars have been transferred to clients within the fourth quarter of 2017. That are more than ever before.

Among them were 15,200 Model S, 13,120 Model X and 1,550 Model 3. However, 2,425 Model 3 have been produced between October and December, thus, 860 units are still on the way to their clients.

These figures show that production of Tesla’s newest model – created for the mass market – is still not stepping up like expected. Initially, the Californian’s wanted to reach an output of 5,000 units per week by December 2017. This target has been meanwhile postponed to the end of the second quarter of 2018. At the end of Q1, Tesla hopes to reach a a weekly rate of about 2,500 Model 3 cars.

However, as Tesla started to deliver its Model 3 to “real” clients at the end of 2017, more and more related videos and driving reports emerge in the internet. We have put a small selection together that shows the Model 3 out of different perspectives:
