Just last quarter (Q2 2019) Tesla surprised many in the industry by delivering approximately 95,200 vehicles, a new record for deliveries for the company. Now it appears Q3 2019 might break that record already.

In a leaked email from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, he said that the company had a shot at delivering over 100,000 vehicles in Q3, and that acheiving this number of devlieries would be “an incredibly exciting milestone for our company”. Musk continues by saying that they should have around 110,000 orders by the end of Q3, and will be pulling out all the stops to ensure that as many vehicles as possible will be delivered by Monday, the end of Q3.

“The challenge is making sure that we have the right car variants in the right locations and rallying as much as our company resources as possible to help with the end of the quarter deliveries.”

Earlier this month we reported that Tesla sales staff were offering two years of free Supercharging to new customers, or 2 free upgrades on the car like wheels or paint, to help push end of quarter sales numbers. On Monday we’ll find out if the push was big enough to break another delivery record for Tesla.
