(Reuters) – Tesla Inc is on the way to top his record for deliveries per quarter in the second quarter, the defeat of the 90,700 it sent to customers in the last quarter of last year, according to an e-mail from Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk on the staff.
Musk the e-mail, widely posted on social media and authenticated to Reuters by a source familiar with the matter, also said the company had on the average produced 900 Model 3 cars per day in this week, bringing it a step closer to the goal of 7,000 per week.
The demand for the Model, the 3 sedan, and Tesla’s of other cars is moved to the top of the investors list of concerns around the company after it reported weak first quarter demand for his car against a background of the AMERICAN-chinese trade tensions.
In the e-mail late Wednesday, Musk also said the company had built more than 50,000 net new orders in this quarter as of Tuesday.
Tesla shares, down for six consecutive sessions, as Wall Street worried about the future of the company and the ability to continue to invest, an increase of 3% shortly after Reuters published on the confirmation of Musk-mail. They had been trading around 2.5%.
