Tesla Cites Shipping Issues as Deliveries Disappoint
Updated on

Tesla Inc.’s shares dropped the most in four months after the carmaker blamed a disappointing deliveries report on shipment issues that increased the number of vehicles on their way to customers as the quarter ended.

The maker of Model 3 sedans and Model Y crossovers handed over 343,830 vehicles to customers in the last three months, short of the almost 358,000 total that analysts expected.
