Tesla Production Hits 7K Cars a Week

Share

Not only did Tesla make its Model 3 goal, but it also achieved another production milestone: 7,000 Model X and Model S units per week.

Mr Musk said that, together with production of Tesla's Model S auto and Model X SUV, the company achieved "a combined 7,000 vehicle week!".

Musk believes so, and has already said that the company expects to produce 6,000 Model 3 sedans a week "next month", according to Reuters.

No standard automotive solution could be built in time, so we created a new solution.

Tesla also raised its production target for the Model 3, its first mass-produced electric vehicle.

The Model 3 can run for 220 miles before it needs to be recharged.

Tesla is expected to release a formal statement on second-quarter vehicle production and delivery figures sometime early this week.

In an email, Mr Musk praised staff for reaching the much-delayed goal, helped by setting up production in a tent.

OnePlus confirms US Carrier relationships and a 5G device for 2019
In the meantime, there is also speculation if the company would release its OnePlus 6T version like it did with the OnePlus 5T. Early in the year, we'd heard that OnePlus was "investigating" potential deals that could be struck with U.S. carriers.

"We did it!" Musk wrote in an email to the company, as reported on the website Electrek, which follows Tesla closely. Our Model 3 weekly production rate also more than doubled during the quarter, and we did so without compromising quality.

"Intense in tents. Transporting entire production lines across the world in massive cargo planes". While Tesla continues to lose money, spirits apparently remain high among assembly line workers.

That is a sentiment shared by Dave Sullivan, manager of product analysis at market research firm AutoPacific Inc.

While it might have built 53,339 vehicles in Q2, it only delivered 40,740 of them - 18,440 Model 3s, with the rest split almost evenly between Model S and Model X. An additional 11,166 Model 3s are now in transit to customers, the large number attributed to last-minute production ramp-ups. "Consistently producing 5,000 per week with outstanding quality is another".

With the 5,000/week mark attained, Tesla is now looking to increase its production capacity for the Model 3 even further. The company said the new general assembly line was responsible for about 20 percent of Model 3s produced last week. Over the past year, Tesla has struggled to ramp up the production of the compact electric sedan, with CEO Elon Musk dubbing the challenge as "production hell".

Despite originally touting the Model 3 as a $35,000 vehicle, Tesla has yet to begin building that basic version and instead is now building a higher-priced version.

Only the long-range variant, which starts at $49,000, is available to the 450,000 people with Model 3 reservations.

June was turbulent for Tesla.
