Tesla ends 2015 on a high with new electric car models Featured

Pioneering electric car and energy storage devices maker Tesla Motors delivered 50,580 of its Model S sedans and Model X sport utility vehicles in the 12months of 2015, despite the challenges of manufacturing multiple vehicle models and a managing big rise in production.

The year ended with Tesla delivering 17,400 vehicles in the last three months of 2015, which was easily the most it had ever delivered in one quarter – in fact, 75% more than in the same quarter in 2014.

The year-end delivery of vehicles was to customers who had been waiting for three years after paying a deposit.

According to Tesla, it manufactured 507 Model X vehicles in the final quarter of the year and is now producing around 238 Model X vehicles per week, while Tesla delivered nearly 50% more vehicles in the last quarter of 2015 than in its next highest quarter.

The Palo Alto, California-based company’s deliveries for the last quarter of 2015 show that they are consistent with its November 2015 projection to ship between 17,000 and 19,000 vehicles in the final three months of the calendar year.

The pioneering electric car maker is now looking to become profitable with its new line of vehicles after years of losses, spending increases and average growth.
