Elon Musk resumed selling shares in Tesla Inc. and passed the halfway point toward making good on a plan to offload 10% of his stake in the electric-car maker.

The billionaire offloaded another 934,091 shares for $1.05 billion, according to regulatory filings posted late Tuesday. The sales were carried out to cover taxes related to Musk exercising an additional 2.15 million stock options, the documents show.
