TSLA, +1.96% said Tuesday that it produced 34,494 vehicles in the first quarter, up 40% from a year ago, including 9,766 Model 3 cars.

Deliveries of all three Tesla vehicles fell short of Wall Street's expectations, including the 8,180 Model 3 deliveries. Analysts had been predicting 12,300 deliveries.
