Update on Tesla’s Future Cars and Roadmap

Tesla’s third quarter 2020 vehicle deliveries were 139,300 and third quarter production estimate is 145,036.

The Q3 2020 deliveries of the Model S and Model X are a little over 15,000 and the Q3 deliveries of the Model 3 and Model Y are over 124,000.

Tesla shut down the Shanghai factory for ten days at the end of September 2020. Tesla was making changes in Shanghai including adding a third shift. Changes in Shanghai and Fremont should enable Tesla to make and deliver 180,000-200,000 cars in Q4 of 2020.

Tesla is expected to begin making the following new vehicles:
Tesla Semi late 2021
Tesla Model S Plaid late 2021
Tesla tri-motor Cybertruck (500+ mile range, $70+k price) late 2021
Tesla dual-motor Cybertruck (300+ mile range, $50+k price) late 2021
Tesla Single Motor Cybertruck (250+ mile range, $40K per vehicle starting price) late 2022
Tesla China Built Smaller Car Planning
Tesla Berlin Built Smaller Car Planning
Tesla $25,000 car Model 2 2022-2023

Other Near Term Developments

Tesla will provide a major update to the self-driving autopilot software.
Tesla will have far larger profits to report at the end of October. This could trigger SP500 inclusion in November or even larger profits in Q4 could trigger inclusion in February.

  1. World wide car production is 92 million cars per year. Tesla has a lot of room for growth. No saying they will ever reach 92 million but 2 to 5 million cars a year should be doable.

  2. Thank you for posting these updates on Tesla/SpaceX. Of all the research and new technologies you post about, Tesla is the one company that actually brings their new technology to fruition in a reasonable timeline. Not all of their innovations are homeruns, but between practical electric cars (although pricy) to battery improvements to reusable rockets to foldable and rapidly deployable satellites for widespread fast internet, Tesla/SpaceX is truly remarkable. If the Boring Company ever reaches critical mass, Elon Musk will truly bypass Edison and Ford as the most significant and profound entrepreneurial innovator of all time…
