In the second quarter of 2021, Tesla reached a new milestone
In the second quarter of 2021, Tesla delivered 201,250 automobiles, a new high for the company. It did, however, fall short of Wall Street’s expectations. Tesla, which is owned by Elon Musk, manufactured 206,421 vehicles within the same time period.
By far the majority — 204,081 — of Tesla’s enormous number of vehicles delivered during the quarter were Model 3 and Model Y automobiles. Tesla also produced 2,340 Model S and Model X vehicles, though the company did not specify how many of the Model S vehicles were the best-in-class Plaid model, which recently started showing up at customers.
Several high-ranking Tesla executives left in the next quarter, including former dependable acting general counsel Al Prescott in April and both deputy general counsel Lynn Miller and former head of automotive and heavy trucking Jerome Guillen in June.
Tesla, like the rest of the auto industry, has faced with a parts shortfall, which includes a lack of semiconductors. Musk tweeted in May that prices were rising as a result of “industry-wide supply chain price-pressure.”
