Tesla's deliveries of electric vehicles fell in the second quarter compared to the previous one due mainly to a weeks-long closure of its factory in China, the company said Saturday.

Elon Musk's enterprise delivered 254,695 vehicles from April to June, it said in a statement.

That's 27 percent more than the same period a year ago but down 18 percent from the January-to-March quarter of 2022 and the first such decline in more than two years.

This marks a disappointment for a company that says it is posting strong growth, touting the opening of two new factories this year, in Germany and Texas.

The drop in deliveries was bigger than that anticipated by analysts, who had expected 264,000 vehicles to be handed over to buyers, according to FactSet, a financial data and software company.

Tesla warned in April that supply chain snarls hitting the auto industry in general would keep disrupting the company's production until the end of the year.

Still, it delivered a record number of cars in the first quarter of 2022.

But in the second quarter Tesla had to grapple with the closure of its Shanghai factory for several weeks because of strict lockdown measures in China due to a surge in Covid-19 cases.

In its statement Saturday the company said it produced 258,000 vehicles in the second quarter "despite ongoing supply chain challenges and factory shutdowns beyond our control."

It also said June was the highest vehicle production month in Tesla's history.

Elsewhere in the industry, General Motors and Toyota saw their second quarter sales in the United States drop by 15 percent and 23 percent respectively, compared to the same period in 2021.

The Inflation Reduction Act, which President Joe Biden signed into law Tuesday, says that if automakers want their electric vehicles to be eligible for tax credits, they'll need to have final assembly in North America. The law, which takes effect immediately, ends credits for about 70% of the 72 models that were previously eligible, according to the Alliance for Automotive Innovation. About 20 model year 2022 and early model year 2023 vehicles will still make the cut for EV tax credits of up to $7,500 through the end of the year under the new legislation.

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) includes the "largest investment ever in combating the existential crisis of climate change", according to President Joe Biden, who will sign the bill into law later on Tuesday. Around $369 billion of federal funds will flow into climate change and energy security, boosting domestic capacity to produce wind turbines, solar panels and electric vehicles. However, the green investment comes with a metallic sting in the tail.

In contrast, Toyota delivered over 10 million cars in 2021 alone. But "production is a much bigger challenge than demand" for Tesla, said Musk.
