In the next quarter, Tesla expects to produce 50,000-55,000 Model 3 vehicles - an increase of up to 92 percent from the previous quarter.
Had it delivered the auto in June, the subsidy would have lapsed a quarter earlier, a strategic move applauded by Ross Gerber, chief executive of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth and Investment Management, which holds Tesla shares.
Tesla pulled out all the stops to finally hit that goal at the end of June, flying in a production line from Germany on a cargo plane, adopting an around-the-clock schedule and erecting a massive tent to house another assembly line in the parking lot of its California plant. But Musk said numerous trade-ins it received were mass-market vehicles, including the Toyota Prius and Honda Accords and Civics.
One thing that stood out and caught investors' attention is the fact that the company's Model 3 auto helped set a new record: a total revenue of United States dollars 4 billion in one quarter. That angered some deposit-holders, and analysts questioned whether more would drop out because of delays making the cheaper $35,000 version.
On the call, Musk also said he expects the company to avoid returning to the markets for capital and to be "essentially self-funding on a go-forward basis".
And, Q2 figures were still an improvement from the $1.05 billion loss in Q1. Tesla also emerged with United States dollars 2.2 billion in cash and equivalents; this should help Musk in raising funds in the coming quarter. Tesla said its capital expenses would be slightly below $2.5 billion in 2018, less than last year's $3.4 billion.
Total revenue rose to $4 billion from $2.79 billion.
