Tesla Share Prices Takes A Hit After Another Model 3 Delay

But it was already hard to see how Tesla can sell the Model 3 at its $35,000 starting price and pull in 25 percent gross margins, which are typical of higher-end luxury cars, Brinkman said.

The successful launch of the Model 3 is crucial to stemming Tesla's cash burn, which hit a record $1.4 billion in the third quarter, said J.P. Morgan analyst Ryan Brinkman in a note sent Thursday. But production of the Model 3 was slowed by manufacturing glitches at Tesla's giant battery plant in Nevada, known as the Gigafactory.

But the company has so far has pushed back its target of making 5,000 Model 3's per week twice. For the year gone by, Tesla delivered 102,432 vehicles, a solid increase from the 83,922 vehicles it delivered in 2016.

"The Model 3 must be right in terms of quality". As a result of the significant growth in our production rate, we made as many Model 3's since December 9 as we did in the more than four months of Model 3 production up to that point.

Estimates for Model 3 deliveries varied wildly, coming in as low as 800 from Colin Rusch of Oppenheimer all the way up to 2,250 from Jeffrey Osborne of Cowen & Co., and about 5,800 from analysts at Evercore. It also surpassed its 100,000-vehicle goal for 2017.

The company said another 2,520 Model S and X vehicles and 860 Model 3 vehicles were in transit to customers at the end of the quarter. Tesla delivered 103,082 cars in 2017, a 36% increase over 2016. Yet in the same period, 63,000 were cancelled, Elon Musk said during Tesla's quarterly conference call in July-a figure he saw as insignificant as it happened over 12 months.

The company announced Wednesday it delivered 1,550 Model 3 sedans in the fourth quarter.

In the USA, the Model 3 will be priced from just $US35,000 ($44,500), putting in reach of many consumers who would normally opt for a petrol-powered passenger vehicle in the segment.

We're very grateful to everyone at Tesla who has poured their heart and soul into helping with the Model 3 ramp and creating the progress we are seeing.

Our delivery count should be viewed as slightly conservative, as we only count a vehicle as delivered if it is transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct.
