“Overall, this quarter was an impressive performance from Musk & Co. and now with a strong second half performance should be able to hit ~900k vehicles for the year, which was a major stretch goal to kick off this year,’ said Wedbush analyst Dan Ives (via The Street).
“China and Europe had strong months of May/June we believe, which were key this quarter and speak to the Model 3/Y strength seen despite chip headwinds,” added Ives.
The strength in the quarter was driven by Model 3/Y which came in at 199,360 deliveries and beat Street estimate of 194,770 for the quarter. This quarter despite Category 5 headwinds Tesla beat the Street on Model 3/Y and had a "comeback kid" performance in China it appears.
