Tesla continues to ramp up deliveries worldwide as the second month of Q3 draws to a close. More and more company's cars arrive in Europe at the satisfaction of new owners.
@mortenlund89 /Twitter reported that a train with hundreds of Tesla Model 3 and Model X was spotted on the Storebælt Bridge in Denmark. The train was heading to the east of the country, which may also indicate that the vehicles will be delivered to Sweden or Norway.

Most of Q3 has already passed and there is only a bit more than one month left. During this period, we typically observe an intense spike in the number of Tesla deliveries.
The bulk of Tesla's production efforts tend to fall in the first half of the quarter. And so, if North America connects more cars with buyers earlier on, then delivery of vehicles to other countries is extended. Shipments occur only after enough Teslas have been produced to fill the ships that will take them across seas. In September, therefore, we will undoubtedly see a sharp increase in deliveries, which will yet again surprise critics, and confirm the expectations of Tesla's supporters.
Coinciding with stellar worldwide deliveries, the company continues to meet the strong demand for Model Y in North America. Tesla's new Model will occupy a market segment that the Model 3 and Model X cannot. The popularity of compact SUVs continues to grow. Those consumers for whom Model 3 was not a good fit due to its compact size--and for whom the Model X was too expensive--can buy the Model Y, which will likely meet all of its needs.
Despite the fact that Model Y will not yet be delivered to Europe and its residents will have to wait for Giga Berlin production, interest in the company's other models remains high.
