Automaker Company downplayed the mass-market vehicle, to give a sales pitch for its more expensive Model S. Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) shares went down -2.47% to $311.02 on Wednesday.
Tesla said it had $4 billion of cash on hand as it headed into the second quarter and expects year-to-date capital expenditures to be slightly over $2 billion by the time it starts Model 3 production – within its previous targeted range of $2 billion to $2.5 billion. Chief Executive Elon Musk’s bold approach to cars, space exploration and clean energy has fueled investor enthusiasm for Tesla. But skeptics are waiting to see if Musk can fulfill his promise of producing 500,000 cars per year in 2018, or six times Tesla’s 2016 production.
“We have seen some impact of Model S orders as a function of people being confused” that Model 3 is the upgrade to Model S, Musk said on a conference call.
