Tesla’s third quarter vehicle deliveries totaled 11,580, up 49% from the prior year.
This number also includse the first deliveries of the new Model X SUV, which the company unveiled earlier this week.
Tesla said in its second quarter earnings release back in August that it expects to deliver 50,000-55,000 vehicles in 2015. In the second quarter Tesla delivered 11,532 vehicles and said it expected to deliver about the same number in Q3.
So Friday’s release looks like Tesla is about in-line with its target, with a big fourth quarter presumably needed to get the company to its full-year target.
In after hours trade on Friday, the stock was up down about 0.6% after gaining 3.2% during regular trade.
