Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) on Sunday said that its vehicle deliveries jumped to 25,000 vehicles in the first quarter, up 69 percent from the same period a year ago.
The report is the first in a pivotal year as Musk differentiates Tesla's line-up, adding the Model 3 as its first high-volume, lower-priced vehicle while making existing models even more exclusive.
Tesla had said production challenges, which started at the end of October and lasted through early December, shifted vehicle production towards the end of the fourth quarter, resulting in delayed deliveries.
The Model X was well received by reviewers on launch, but was plagued with bugs, most notably with its falcon doors.
