Tesla's Model S and X deliveries plummet in the first quarter of 2019

Tesla's vehicle production & deliveries report for the first quarter of 2019 is out, and it's not great. 

Not so much because of the 31 percent quarter-over-quarter sales drop — the largest in Tesla's history — though. According to Tesla, due to delivery challenges in Europe and China, the company was left with 10,600 vehicles in transit at the end of Q1, meaning those sales will count towards the second quarter. 

Far more problematic were Model S and X deliveries in Q1, which fell from 27,607 to 12,100 since last quarter — a 56 percent drop.
