Electric vehicle (EV) maker Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) released its second-quarter vehicle production and delivery report for 2023. The EV giant reported deliveries of 466,140 and total production of 479,700, both of which beat analysts' expectations and an 83% year-over-year rise for deliveries.

Tesla stock was last seen 8.4% higher to trade at $283.68. This represents a new 2023 high, helping the shares to a 126.4% year-to-date lead. Further, TSLA also just locked in its third-straight quarterly and monthly wins, as well as its seventh weekly gain in eight. 

Call volume is slightly higher than usual this morning. Within the first half hour of trading, 703,000 bullish bets have traded hands, which is nearly double the intraday average. New positions are opening at the top six most popular contracts, led by the weekly 7/7 280-strike call. 

This penchant for bullish bets is nothing new. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the stock's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 1.53 ranks higher than all annual readings from the past 12 months. 

Now may be a great time to weigh in on TSLA with options. This is per the security's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS), which sits at a 93 out of 100, suggesting Tesla stock has exceeded option traders' volatility expectations during the past year. 

At least five analysts also hiked their price targets following the news. Canaccord Genuity adjusted all the way up to $293 from $257, while Truist Securities hiked to a more modest $240 from $154. Meanwhile, the 12-month average target price of $205.38 is a roughly 26.6% discount to Tesla stock's current perch.
