model s sales

Could the demand for the Model S be fading? Since its first full production year in 2013, Model S sales have climbed pretty much each each quarter of each year. That seems to have changed and now, for the first time, the first two quarters of 2016 have shown a decline in sales. This decline drops well below Tesla's biggest numbers (17,272), which were in the fourth quarter of 2015. Models S sales for the 2nd quarter of 2016 reached only 9,745 and Tesla hasn't seen that low since back in 2014. Even if you add in Model X sales that could be taking some of the limelight and production from the Model S, the totals are still quite a bit below their peak.

This graph from electrek shows Tesla's Model S and X quarterly deliveries:

If they continue through the end of the year at about the same level, they'll surpass the 200,000 limit on the EV tax credit. Not counting the funds they're receiving for selling EV credits and the likely changes CAFE will make, they may start to lose even more money, and those wishing and expecting the Model 3 to get the $7500 tax credit will be sorely surprised, and things may change even faster. I think, while totally in a different class, the impending Chevy Bolt intro may also be affecting things.
