Tesla "just became a real vehicle company" after reaching a critical milestone

Tesla 'real car company' after hitting Model 3 goal, Musk says

The Model 3 - heralded as Tesla's first "mass market" vehicle - has plagued the company since its launch. Tesla hopes to increase production to 6,000 Model 3s per week by late August.

In an email sent to employees, Musk said that the company had reached its production target for the Model 3 and is aiming to produce 6000 Model 3s a week in July.

Monday's stock surge also makes true on Musk's recent warning of the "short burn of the century", another show of his disdain for short sellers, or those investors betting against Tesla's stock price. However, Tesla was forced to build a makeshift tent containing a production line comprised of spare parts in order to reach this goal.

Model S and Model X deliveries, meanwhile, are still on track for Tesla's earlier prediction of 100,000 cars in 2018 overall, the automaker says. It's an ambitious goal, to be sure, and whether or not Tesla can reach it will likely go a long ways to proving whether or not Tesla has finally figured out how to ramp up production in a significant manner or if the 5,000/week production rate was nothing more than a fluke. Including Model S and X production, the company had a "7000 vehicle week", he wrote. The boost in productivity has been attributed to GA4, the new Tesla production line which is located in a tent.

In another bid to push the limits of technology, Tesla at times pulls robots off the line and tests them operating at speeds greater than specified by the supplier, said Charles Mwangi, Tesla's director of body engineering. Are more shutdowns in store, or does Tesla think it's achieved a steady rate of production?

"We did it! What an incredible job by an fantastic team".

"We also reaffirm our guidance for positive GAAP net income and cash flow in Q3 and Q4, despite negative pressures from a weaker USA dollar and likely higher tariffs for vehicles imported into China as well as components procured from China", the company said.

Tesla's Model 3 announcement was an eagerly awaited update, although AutoPacific's Sullivan does have a point that repeatability is essential in order for the Model 3 to become the success Tesla needs it to be. Tesla introduced the model 3 in the year 2016, and Tesla planned to produce 5,000 Model 3 cars a week in 2017 and 10,000 a week by 2018. Couldn't be more proud to work with you.

"We did it!" CEO Elon Musk announced in an email to Tesla employees Sunday afternoon, which Bloomberg published in its entirety.

He continued: "The level of dedication and creativity was mind-blowing".

No standard automotive solution could be built in time, so we created a new solution. "These cuts were nearly entirely made from our salaried population and no production associates were included, so this will not affect our ability to reach Model 3 production targets in the coming months". At the time, Tesla was producing 3,500 of the vehicles per week, he said.
