Elon Musk deleted a tweet in which he shared an incorrect report that Tesla Inc. had outsold all other luxury automakers in the U.S.

The Tesla chief executive officer shared an article Thursday written by a Forbes contributor that incorrectly said Tesla had become America’s No. 1 premium auto company. Forbes has since amended the story and clarified that the earlier version had compared Tesla’s global deliveries with U.S.-only sales for Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz, BMW AG’s namesake brand and Toyota Motor Corp.’s Lexus.
