Tesla Q1 Sales Down In Western Europe, Model S & X Down Globally
While Tesla is ramping up production and deliveries of Model 3, combined sales of its two other cars – Model S and Model X – are decreasing.
According to the AIDNewsletter via a Matthias Schmidt tweet (see below), Tesla delivered 6,158 Model S and Model X in Western Europe during the first quarter of 2018. That’s 5.2% less than the 6,397 it delivered in Q1 2017. We should note though that there were some troubles with deliveries in Norway.
Deliveries of the S and X decreased in the U.S. by 5.8% too, if our estimations are correct.
The previous three quarters were stagnant for the S and X in the U.S.:
Globally, Model S and Model X deliveries decreased nearly 13% to around 21,800 in the first quarter and that’s the first time we’ve seen a decrease year-over-year.
Q1 2018: 6,158
Q1 2017: 6,497
In Europe just Model X/S delivered in Q1 apart from a handful of private M3 imports
