There have been criticisms of Tesla ability, or rather the lack of it, to deliver on its promises in terms of production and, well, deliveries.
The car maker has largely downplayed those but in its Q1 2019 report on production and deliveries, it had no choice but to admit it had lower than expected deliveries which, of course, will now negatively impact their first-quarter earnings.
Of course, Tesla is playing it as something of a positive.
While deliveries in Europe and China increased by 5x, the inventory situation in North America was the inverse.
At the end of Q1, it only had two weeks of supply.
The industry average, Tesla quotes, is 2-3 months of supply.
