Shortages finally catch up with Tesla

Parts shortages and pandemic-related production shutdowns at Tesla’s plant in Shanghai caused a big drop in the electric car maker’s latest global vehicle deliveries, according to recent released figures.

The US automaker said it had delivered 254,000 vehicles in the second quarter. The delivery figure was well below the 350,000 that Wall Street had been expecting at the beginning of the quarter. Tesla said the latest delivery figures reflected “ongoing supply chain challenges and factory shutdowns beyond our control”. 

According to the FT, until its recent setback in China, Tesla had managed to resist many of the supply chain pressures that have hit other automakers since last year.
