Tesla Motors said Thursday that it has now received 325,000 orders for its Model 3.
In its statement, Tesla said that the updated figure represents $14 billion in implied future sales. The company also joked that it would have written more on the subject, but needed to get back to increasing its Model 3 production plans.
Tesla shares were down 2.6 percent to $258.50 midmorning Thursday. (Get the latest quote here.)
Within the first 24 hours of last week's Model 3 launch, Tesla received 180,000 orders, according to CEO Elon Musk.
