The Wall Street Journal: Tesla deliveries rose in “exceptionally difficult” first quarter
vehicle deliveries rose in the first quarter, but missed Wall Street expectations as the company struggled with global supply chain disruptions and a brief Covid-19 shutdown at its Shanghai factory.
“This was an *exceptionally* difficult quarter due to supply chain interruptions & China zero Covid policy,” Tesla chief executive Elon Musk tweeted Saturday morning.
The electric-car maker said Saturday that it delivered 310,000 vehicles globally in the first three months of the year, rising about 68% from the same period a year ago. Deliveries were roughly flat from the final quarter of 2021.
