Tesla: Shares up 7% on boom in deliveries


Tesla reported that the stock was up more than 7% in Monday morning trade. This significant increase was due to deliveries and production numbers in the second quarter, which beat analysts’ expectations.

Record deliveries in the second quarter

Tesla released its vehicle production and deliveries report for the second quarter of 2023 on Sunday. Key figures suggest that the total number of deliveries was 466,140while total production has reached its quota 479,700. These results beat analysts’ estimates and suggest so an 83% increase in deliveries for Tesla year-over-year. The company achieved these results by expanding manufacturing capabilities and increasing production at its Austin, Texas vehicle assembly plant.

The second quarter of 2023 marks the fifth consecutive period in which Tesla recorded more vehicles produced than vehicles delivered. In the same period last year, Tesla recorded 254,695 deliveries, in the first quarter of this year there were 422,875 deliveries. In terms of production, Tesla had produced 258,580 vehicles in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 440,808 vehicles last quarter.

Shipments are a very important number for Tesla shareholders and represent the closest approximation to the company’s reported sales. Wall Street awaited a report from Tesla 445,924 deliveries for the period ended June 30, 2023, but the company exceeded those estimates by delivering more 20,000 more cars. This result was achieved thanks to the incentives and rebates offered to buyers in the first half of the year, as well as the federal tax credit $7,500 in the United States provided byInflation Reduction Law.

The future worries about Tesla remain

Alexander E Potter, a senior research analyst at Piper Sandler, said Tesla car prices remained stable in the second quarter, despite the company’s sharp discounts in the first quarter, which raised concerns about margins. However, Potter warned that price cuts in the third quarter, if implemented, could reignite investor concerns about the company’s margins.

The company achieved these results by expanding manufacturing capacity and increasing production at its Austin, Texas vehicle assembly plant. Despite stock growth, expectation of new models and increasing competition could continue to put pressure on Tesla’s sales.
