Tesla has hit record highs in recent days and the company has announced its expansion into an array of new business ventures, and it all comes right before a pivotal time for the company’s bread-and-butter revenue grabber: Its second quarter delivery report for its vehicles.
Tesla is set to report its Q2 vehicle deliveries sometime in early July, likely before the Independence Day holiday. The Elon Musk-led company differs with its delivery reporting model in that it only files reports quarterly, rather than the monthly filing that is industry standard.
As the norm, Tesla will report Model X and Model S deliveries in the last fiscal quarter, but this particular quarterly report will be an interesting milestone because it will be the last time we can peek at the company’s deliveries before its much anticipated Model 3 starts being shipped in July.
According to The Motley Fool, Tesla said it expected a 61% to 71% increase in Model S and Model X deliveries during the first half of the year compared with the first half of 2016. During Q1, Tesla delivered over 25,000. The deliveries indicate 69% year-over-year growth compared with deliveries in Q1 of 2016, leaving 22,000 to 25,000 more units for Tesla to deliver in this quarter for Tesla to hit its guidance range of 47,000-50,000 vehicles.
The report will also feature model-specific delivery reports. While Model S sales growth has hit the pause button, Model X sales continue to demonstrate quarterly rise. It is unclear if Model 3 sales will have impacted Model X and Model S sales, with consumers ordering that model and waiting patiently for its July delivery time instead of ordering one of the already established models.
