Tesla shares plummet due to disappointing deliveries and production efforts

Tesla’s stock took a hit on Wall Street after the company announced that it had delivered fewer vehicles in the first quarter than anticipated. The electric car manufacturer reported 386,810 vehicles delivered, falling short of the 457,000 that analysts had projected. Production also decreased by 8.5% to 433,371 cars during the quarter due to challenges related to production of new Model 3 at Fremont plant in California, delivery disruptions due to conflicts in Red Sea and sabotage incident at German factory.

Wedbush analysts described the first quarter as “disastrous” and noted that it had “negatively shocked” the market. Tesla’s price cuts in US to address inflation and rising interest rates were not enough to keep up with demand. Despite this, Tesla announced an increase in Model Y prices by $1,000 effective April 1st which added more pressure on investors and analysts.

Tesla’s struggles in the first quarter have raised concerns among investors and analysts about its ability to meet delivery targets and production goals. The external factors such as conflicts and sabotage have further impacted its performance and market appeal. To regain investor confidence and ensure sustained growth in the future, Tesla needs to address these issues head-on.
