Q2 production and delivery info is out.

http://ir.tesla.com/news-releases/news- ... deliveries

They delivered 18,440 Model 3s in Q2 in the US and Canada.

The company has 11,166 Model 3s in transit, perhaps held back past July 1st for tax credit purposes.

It looks plausible that the Model 3 is on track in the US to outsell the Bolt, Leaf, Volt, and all compliance BEVs for 2018. Combined.

Probably, but Tesla’s production and deliveries are inconsistent and volatile compared to legacy automakers, so a full-year snapshot is perhaps more accurately representative of the situation.

As Model 3 production hits critical moment, Tesla’s top engineer taking a break

Tesla Inc.’s top engineer overseeing vehicle development is taking a leave of absence from the company at a crucial moment when the electric-car maker is struggling to boost production of the Model 3 sedan, according to people familiar with the matter.

Doug Field, Tesla’s TSLA, -1.30% senior vice president of engineering, is stepping away from the company for several weeks, these people said. One person described the absence as a “six-week sabbatical,” and Tesla declined to say when he would come back.

“Doug is just taking some time off to recharge and spend time with his family,” a Tesla spokesman said in a statement. “He has not left Tesla.”...

It's no longer temporary.

Not bad, but in a couple of months Tesla will be shipping 25k Model 3 a month and will be hard at work trying to figure out how to double that number within a year.

Via IEVS:
Tesla Expected To Open Model 3 Configurator To Everyone This Week
https://insideevs.com/tesla-expected-open-model-3-configurator-to-all/

Tesla will reportedly bypass the reservation system and let anyone in the U.S. or Canada order a Model 3 via the Online Design Studio. . . .

This move by Tesla had many reservation holders upset since some waited in line the very first day in order to assure that they would be ahead of the pack. Also, some of these customers had hoped for the base Model 3, as well as the full $7,500 federal EV tax credit. Hopefully, they realized early on that Tesla would not be releasing the base model for some time and that the tax credit will be beginning the sunset process in the coming months.

Fast forward to today and not only can any North American reservation holder jump on the Tesla website and configure, but anyone in the U.S. and Canada can place a Model 3 order immediately. This means they don’t even have to reserve first with a $1,000 deposit.

Keep in mind that Electrek reported that Tesla still plans to prioritize orders for reservation holders. However, we haven’t heard any of this information from Tesla and we have no way of knowing “if” and “how” the automaker plans to handle the priority system, which seems to be changing on a regular basis. . . .
