Electric-car maker Tesla has delivered 139,300 vehicles during the third quarter.

The company delivered 124,100 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles against production of 128,044.

Tesla delivered 15,200 Model S and Model X vehicles against production of 16,992.

Tesla delivered 90,650 cars during the second. Second quarter was tough for Tesla as the company was in partial lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The company is expecting to deliver 500,000 vehicles in 2020, or a 36 percent increase over 2019.

The EV maker has only sent out 318,350 cars to customers so far, meaning it would need to make 1,81,650 deliveries to meet that goal.

“Our net income and cash flow results will be announced along with the rest of our financial performance when we announce Q3 earnings. Our delivery count should be viewed as slightly conservative, as we only count a car as delivered if it is transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct,” Tesla said.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Friday that the electric car maker is ready to enter the India EV market in 2021.

Elon Musk revealed his plans to bring Tesla cars to India in his response to a Twitter post that asked about the progress on Tesla’s planned entry into India.
