The company is also adding new Tesla Stores and Superchargers around the U.S.
Tesla Motors is greeting the new spring season with plenty of Model S-related news, including its achievement of more than 500
deliveries per week
"Over the past few months it’s been fun to watch the company achieve new milestones," said George Blankenship, VP of Worldwide Sales and Ownership Experience at Tesla. "First it was the factory ramping up to full production in December. During the past three weeks we have averaged more than 500 Model S deliveries per week, and it looks like we’ll be setting another record this week.
"With all these new cars on the road, it’s fun to watch as Model S racks up the miles. Model S drivers have traveled more than 12 million miles since deliveries first began. That’s a lot of CO2 emissions saved! And how are things going in California? Well, today we registered our 3,000th Model S in the Golden State. That pretty much says it all!"
Blankenship's post on Tesla's blog also mentioned a few other tidbits, such as the opening of new Tesla Stores in the Los Angeles area and Miami (as well as more service centers across North America and Europe throughout 2013); the addition of more Superchargers around the U.S. in places like the Pacific Northwest, Illinois, Texas, Florida, the Northeast and California, and the fact that the Model S is now officially a World Car.
Tesla has had some rough patches lately, such as
issues with a journalist from
The New York Times,
took a test drive this winter and reported
a horrific venture
. More specifically, he said that the Model S didn't have the range Tesla said it did, and ended up on a flatbed truck at the end of the trip. Musk and the NYT journalist (John Broder)
ended up feuding
over the matter.
But Tesla and its CEO Elon Musk is turning that luck around with predictions of
in the first quarter and by vowing to
pay off its $465 million government loan
within five years.
However, one recent hiccup is a delay to production of
the Model X
Tesla had hoped to begin production of the vehicle this year, but those plans have been put off until
late 2014 (meaning deliveries will likely be pushed to 2015).

This argument have been debunked a million times dude. Stop being so ignorant and listen to facts.
Whether you like it or not, EV are coming. It's gonna happen and you can't stop it. Get used to that idea or you will be left behind.
Alot of people thought cellphones are rich people who don't want to talk to their friends in person .... back in the 80's 90's. So many people resisted it. It was expensive.
Where are we now douchebag?
