The forecasts were actually rosy: analysts said Tesla had good prospects for the start of the year. This did not come true.

From January to March, sales fell by 8.5 percent to just under 387,000 vehicles compared to the same quarter last year, the company announced on Tuesday. Analysts surveyed by Visible Alpha, however, had expected growth of more than eight percent to a good 458,000 units.
