Noting that the car has "nearly completed all [the] regulatory approvals and certifications required," Tesla plans to begin initial deliveries in June.  This is only one month ahead of schedule, but Tesla is optimistic that all of the crash testing required under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act will be completed shortly.

While only a "few" customers are likely to receive their cars in June, the company remains confident that they will deliver at least 5,000 Model S' by the end of the year.
