Tesla press release... Tesla Q2 2019 Vehicle Production & Deliveries | Tesla, Inc. So for Model 3 UK orders what could this mean? Tesla stated: "In the second quarter, we achieved record production of 87,048 vehicles and record deliveries of approximately 95,200 vehicles." "Orders generated during the quarter exceeded our deliveries, thus we are entering Q3 with an increase in our order backlog. We believe we are well positioned to continue growing total production and deliveries in Q3." Apparently, this answers the question as to why they opened the RHD order books before having the vehicles/capacity to fulfil them. So they could make this statement to allay analysts criticisms of weaker than expected demand? The Tesla press release also said: "Customer vehicles in transit at the end of the quarter were over 7,400" This is a global figure so it could suggest very few RHD cars in transit. However, the press release also goes on to say "We count a produced but undelivered vehicle to be in transit if the related customer has placed an order or paid the full purchase price for such vehicle." Tesla mentions the "order-to-VIN matching process" in relation to the "Customer vehicles in transit" metric. So, does this mean the 7,400 vehicles in transit are only counted if a VIN has already been matched to a customers order?
