Tesla Model 3 Production Aims for 3000 Units Per Week

Tesla Model 3 Production Aims for 3000 Units Per Week

"The reason that the burst-build target rate is 6,000 and not 5,000 per week in June is that we can not have a number with no margin for error across thousands of internally and externally produced parts and processes", Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote in an internal email earlier this week, obtained by Electrek.

Tesla has announced it is going to stop production of the Model 3 temporarily, the latest in a series of setbacks for the company. We reached out to Tesla about the email, but a representative declined to comment on it. In the past month, a Tesla SUV on auto-pilot crashed and killed the driver; thousands of the company's Model S cars had to be recalled; and CEO Elon Musk admitted excessive automation was a mistake.

Tesla Motors Inc wants to hire hundreds more workers to ramp up production of its Model 3 vehicles around the clock at its factories, according to a leaked email from Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk.

China sales rise 3% in March

We've reported over the past week on the "production hell" that has engulfed the Tesla Model 3.

This is at least the 2nd time since February that Tesla has shut down its production line for the Model 3 at its Fremont, California plant. "This means that we will be adding another shift to general assembly, body and paint", Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote in the email obtained by Electrek. The company announced Monday that it would be pausing production of the electric vehicle once again for "planned downtime" while it works to improve automation.

"These periods are used to improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks in order to increase production rates", a company spokesperson said. Delays and lower-than-expected volume have postponed revenue from cars being delivered to customers from reaching Tesla's bottom line.

Tesla's problem-plagued Model 3 sedan is a case in point.

Production of the Model 3 "increased exponentially" - to more than 2,000 per week - the company said in a statement earlier this month, even though the number fell short of the company's goal of 2,500 per week.
