Morgan Stanley: Tesla will not reach predicted 2015 deliveries

One of Tesla Motors’ most bullish supporters in the financial community said Tuesday he expects the automaker to fall short of its goal of 55,000 vehicle deliveries for 2015. Morgan Stanley automotive analyst Adam Jonas cited concerns about the timing of the Tesla Model X SUV launch and Tesla’s ability to rapidly build up the car’s inventory and fill back orders before Dec. 31. Tesla watchers will look to CEO Elon Musk to address these and other questions following the company’s first-quarter earnings results due in early May.
