Demand outstripped production for Q2, increasing the order backlog going into the second half of the year.

As forecast by Elon Musk, Tesla has posted a record quarter with 95,200 deliveries.

The Q2 tally included 17,650 Model S/X deliveries and 77,500 Model 3 sedans shipped to customers. Production numbers also set a new benchmark for the company, with 87,048 vehicles rolling off the assembly line across the three-month period.

"Orders generated during the quarter exceeded our deliveries, thus we are entering Q3 with an increase in our order backlog," the company said in a statement. "We believe we are well positioned to continue growing total production and deliveries in Q3."
