Tesla Inc (TSLA) Struggles With Battery Shortfall As Car Deliveries Drop

Consider these main points.

The Tesla Model 3 is unlikely to experience delays in deliveries that were due to production issues with the battery packs.

The starting price of Model 3 will be only $35,000. The Volvo announcement drove home the fact that Tesla is going to face more competition. For comparison, the cost of Model S starts from 68,000 dollars while Model X starts from 83,000 dollars. Of course, the Model 3 will also feature Tesla's landmark Autopilot feature as a standard.

The vehicle which is Tesla's most affordable vehicle yet at an initial price of $35,000 has initially received 400,000 in pre-order after its reveal earlier a year ago at a Tesla event.

While the company has to be appreciated for catching up and moving ahead of the shortfall, there is one more factor that Elon Musk is contributing the success to. So, in September the market will be released not less than 1,500 electric cars.

Tamberrino said he is concerned with the plateauing nature of Tesla's combined Model S and Model X deliveries. But the make-or-break drama will continue until Tesla proves that it can turn out Model 3s at high volume and accumulate more cash than it costs to build them. It produced only 84,000 cars in 2016. The Model X and Model S production started to fall short against the timetable that Musk had put out. Tesla also said that some of the executives of the company also attended the event as they wanted to know about the work environment and how they can improve it in the future.

"Expecting to complete" the first auto Friday, CEO Elon Musk wrote in Twitter post, adding that it passed all its regulatory requirements for production two weeks ahead of schedule.

The Tesla Model 3 electric vehicle will be mass produced this year.
