Tesla, the EV maker, announced a whooping loss of $702 million in the 1st quarter of 2019. The reasons for this could be the dis-appointing delivery numbers and cost adjustments.

CFO Zachary Kirkhorn, Tesla, quoted “This was one of the most complicated quarters in Tesla’s history! “. He further spoke about expanding the automobile sales to deliver the Model 3 in other parts of the world. He also shed light on a few other plans of the company.
Earlier this month, Elon Musk, CEO; Tesla, warned that the brand might have to face the losses due to the poor delivery numbers and the price adjustments.
