Tesla has disappointed production forecasts for its new Model 3 saloon amid continuing manufacturing troubles.
The latest production and delivery numbers released by Tesla fall well short of already reduced forecasts.
Tesla claimed it had delivered just 1,550 of the new Model 3 car in the fourth quarter of 2017, significantly behind consensus analyst forecasts for 5,200 deliveries.
The production problems are an especially bitter blow as the Model 3 was intended to be Tesla´s first mass-production car.
Priced at $35,000, the all-electric Model 3 has a range of 220 miles.
