TESLA-BATTERY SHORTAGE

Tesla Motors has a battery problem: It doesn't have enough of them. CEO Elon Musk says a shortage of battery cells caused his company to ship cars to Europe that could have been sold in North America in the third quarter. And relief won't come until next year. That's a big reason why the high-flying electric car company's shares take a dramatic 14 percent tumble. By Tom Krisher and David Koenig. SENT: 130 words, photo. UPCOMING: 750 words by 6 p.m.
