Financial Position

Tesla had cash and cash equivalents of $4.95 billion as of Jun 30, 2019, compared with $2.24 billion, as of Jun 30, 2018.

Net cash provided by operating activities amounted to $863.6 million in second-quarter 2019 compared with $129.7 million of net cash used in second-quarter 2018. Capital expenditure declined to $249.7 million from $609.8 million in the year-ago quarter.

Model 3 Update

In second-quarter 2019, Tesla reported record Model 3 delivery of 77,634. During the quarter, the production rate of Model 3 continued to improve. The company targets to produce 10,000 vehicles of each model by the end of 2019.
