Is Tesla Selling More Cars Than Everyone Thinks?
There has been significant speculation this year over how many $70,000 Model S sedans Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TLSA) will manage to sell, but while conclusive reports have been scarce, the International Business Times highlighted one metric on Friday that points to a significantly higher sales figure than many expect.
The publication’s report illuminates information leaking in from a community of Tesla followers who closely observe and analyze Model S developments. This time around, they’ve been monitoring Model S VINs, or vehicle identification numbers, and were able to use the serial numbers to track the number of vehicles the company is making, had made, or sold.
For any of those frustrated with Tesla’s lack of information concerning sales figures and production numbers, the data are significantly valuable. While they do not indicate how many cars have been sold, they at least reveal how many cars are in the works.
