For the third quarter of 2015, Tesla Motors has recorded a 49 per cent jump in Model S deliveries over the same time period in 2014.
In July, August and September, a total of 11,580 Tesla Model S sedans were delivered worldwide. In typical Tesla style, few other details have been released including how many of those Model Ss went overseas and just how many were delivered in each of the three months in question.
Nevertheless, with the American electric automaker recently opening a factory in the Netherlands, it seems likely that deliveries will continue to rise, particularly across Europe. The new factory has the ability to produce 450 vehicles a week and is particularly interesting as it incorporates a 750 metre long indoor test track.
The track will be used to simulate a selection of different road surfaces and help with final pre-delivery checks while checking vibration and noise levels. Additionally, the electric automaker will test out its Autopilot systems around the track.
Late last month, the Tesla Model X was introduced representing the company’s first foray into the SUV market.
