    Sales isn't Tesla's issue from what I understand, it's producing enough models to fill the orders.

    Yes meeting production targets is their major issue, but selling more Model 3s than all BMW models means they are producing a lot of cars; they are not some small-fry niche manufacturer. Starting a brand new brand from the ground up without any assistance from the big boys is an insurmountably hard thing to do in the auto industry. All the big boys would love to have Tesla's problem of orders surpassing capacity.

    Also, your thread title isn't correct. It should be "all BMW cars" not "all models". Still impressive if true though.

    It's a back log. They had already sold every car. Only 400,000 more to go.

    Good for them, but demand has never been their problem.

    it was the #1 passenger car by sales revenue too. The F-150 still dominates the landscape however. 'Murica loves its trucks.

    lol as if that matters. Every car is spoken for before it hits a showroom. The problem is so many people reserved the cheapest base model at ~45k, and those haven't even begun production until they get the optioned out models out.

    They're good cars, and it's extremely hard to develop a completely new car. Too bad they didn't foresee one of the pitfalls, production problems.

    Isn´t passenger cars pretty much a dying segment in the US? GM and Ford seem to be cutting that segment completely in North America to focus on trucks and SUVs.

    Not bad for a company that does not advertise and has received a considerable amount of negative press.

    Not bad. Im rooting for them but until they get all the kinks worked out of the manufacturing process ill still be skeptical. Musk needs to be reigned in quite a bit and may have put them in a bad position with the FCC because of his tweets.
    Overall i think Tesla will be a great company but they arent there yet. Are they even profitable yet?

    It was 15th overall if your include trucks and SUV's. Still not too shabby.
