Tesla’s 2Q17 vehicle production

Tesla’s 2Q17 car production was 25,708 units. That was a rise of about 40.1% from its production of 18,345 car units in the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

The company produced 1.1% fewer cars in the previous quarter, which stood at 25,418. That QoQ change didn’t show any major improvement in its car production rate. According to the company’s press release on July 3, 2017, the slow growth was due to “a severe production shortfall of 100 kWh battery packs, which are made using new technologies on new production lines.”

1H17 deliveries and production

In the first half of 2017, Tesla managed to significantly improve its vehicle deliveries and production rate on a year-over-year basis. In that period, about 47,100 vehicles were delivered, which was a ~75.0% increase from the first half of 2016. Similarly, its production data for the first half of 2017 was strong at 51,126, which was about a 51.0% increase YoY.

Note that Tesla’s annual vehicle production rate is significantly lower than other automakers (XLY) such as General Motors (GM), Ford (F), and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU).
