Tesla tries to achieve record deliveries in the quarter, and it expects the North American market to do so with fast deliveries by the end of the month.
Electrek has learned that Tesla currently supplies cars at a speed of about 1000 per day.
In recent weeks, CEO Elon Musk has signaled that Tesla is within reach of a new record quarter for deliveries, but they have some obstacles to overcome.
As we reported earlier this month, Tesla aims to deliver between 33,000 and 36,000 cars in June in North America to break its delivery record.
The company also offers incentives to employees to motivate them to reach the goal.
According to sources familiar with the case, Tesla has delivered cars at a rate of about 1
In addition, almost 7,000 more deliveries are scheduled for the next 7 days, and even more cargo-terminated deliveries are expected during the quarter as buyers try to get supplies before the federal tax credit on the Tesla vehicle goes down.
Musk reminded customers yesterday:
US tax credit of $ 3750 falls in half for Tesla July 1. Order online in a few minutes at https ps: //t.co/46TXqRrsdr. Return for 7 days for full refund.

Buyers must accept delivery at the end of the quarter to get the full $ 3,700.
After that, it falls to $ 1,875 at the end of the year Then Tesla buyers will not have access to any federal tax credit unless the law changes within the next 6 months.
Tesla aims for global deliveries in the quarter to beat its previous delivery record of 90,700 cars achieved in Q4 2018.
Based on information from sources, I grow increasingly in that Tesla will deliver at least 33,000 deliveries in North America in June and reach its record delivery number.
It seems that the Tesla Raven engine for Model S and Model X also helped to boost demand this quarter – although the offer for current Model S and Model X owners gets Ludicrous free if they upgrade, may have been bigger demand driver.  Anyway, it should help Tesla's mix of sales and have higher average prices than in the first quarter.
It is important to keep in mind that although Tesla does not achieve this record, they still live electric vehicles at a higher rate than any other car manufacturer at this point.
In North America, Tesla delivers more EVs in 3 days than GM delivers for a full month.
We are monitoring the progress next week as Tesla tries to achieve a new record for sales and deliveries.
