      Tesla's March U.S. sales numbers were as follows:
      Model S : 2,275
      Model 3 : 10,175
      Model X : 2175

      The Q1 U.S. total was 30,600 vehicles. This compares to Q4 2018's U.S. total of 77,525 units for a decline of 61%. Musk had warned of both declining volume and an operating loss for Q1, but not to such an extreme extent.

      Model 3 U.S. volume over the last 6 months ~
      Oct '18 : 17,750
      Nov '18 : 18,650
      Dec '18 : 22,250
      Jan '19 : 6,500
      Feb '19 : 5,750
      Mar '19 : 10,175

      The pertinent question stands- what is the true mean monthly demand for the Model 3, and was the volume uptick in Q4 2018 solely due to the upcoming (Jan 1, '19) halving of the tax credit?
