'Production constrained' common theme during Tesla conference call (in progress)

|About: Tesla Motors (TSLA)|By:, SA News Editor

Tesla Motors (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk says the automaker will be "production constrained" - not demand constrained as it moves forward next year.

Model S deliveries will expand into Asia and new parts of Europe in 2014, says Musk.

The call bogs down into details on battery components before getting into some more interesting production questions. Musk says the company is set to sustain a production run of 20K a year in North America, but he seems cautious on aiming higher globally due to production constraints. Nothing specific yet on production targets for 2014.
