Tesla E-Car Sales Jump 49pc
The company is aiming to deliver between 50,000 and 55,000 this year but would need a surge in output of its US$76,000-and-up Model S sedans and Model X SUVs. In all Tesla has sold 33,117 vehicles this year.
The carmaker didn’t reveal sales of its new Model X, pictured, but because it has only just been released, it is unlikely to have impacted heavily on sales figures.
The price of a Model X starts at $132,000, with Google co-founder Sergey Brin and Tesla board member Steve Jurvetson among the first to receive the vehicles. Australia’s Simon Hackett, an NBN director, has also ordered one – for his missus.
