Elon Musk's Tesla looks to be getting away with functioning like a conventional automobile manufacturer.

The market leader in electric vehicles claimed another record-high quarter for deliveries,

putting little more than 466,000 EVs in customers' hands during the second quarter.

However, over those three months, the company produced close to 480,00 vehicles.

Prices of Tesla's models have decreased by anywhere between 14% and 28%.

 Tesla claimed 440,000 vehicle production and just under 423,000 vehicle deliveries.

Having yet another record quarter demonstrates that price reductions and the classic auto strategy are still effective.

Tesla has been acting more and more like the established automakers it has long worked valiantly to avoid.
