Tesla is trying hard to meet its own projection for Model 3, even earlier the CEO of the company Elon Musk took over the production and started pulling all-nighters at the factory. But Tesla temporarily shutting down the car’s Fremont, CA assembly line where a report earlier today claimed it’s undercounting injuries for four to five days reported by Buzzfeed. A similar type of shutdown happened at March this year too. Tesla responded to this report saying “These periods are used to improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks in order to increase production rates. This is not unusual and is in fact common in production ramps like this.”
By the end of Q1 2018 Tesla was supposed to manufacture 5,000 of the mass-market aimed EVs per week. This was projected by the company but its production report a couple of weeks ago showed the number at 2,020. Elon Musk in a recent interview told that Human workers are underrated and an over-reliance on robots and battery module production at its Gigafactory in Nevada as limiting factors. He also said that he is targeting July as a potential month to hit the milestone, saying that production of AWD models is likely to begin after it hits the 5,000 per week number.
