Elon Musk says Model 3 production struggles are ‘stressful’ and ‘painful’
Over the past few months, investors have been keeping an incredibly close eye on Tesla's ability to ramp up Model 3 production. And with good reason, the Model 3 was supposed to be the first Tesla vehicle not subject to any prolonged delays. Speaking to this point, Tesla CEO Elon Musk many months ago claimed that Model 3 production would reach 20,000 units per month by the end of 2017, an ambitious goal Tesla didn't come anywhere close to achieving.
As it stands now, Tesla is currently manufacturing the Model 3 at a rate of 2,020 units per week. Looking forward, Tesla is aiming to reach a threshold of 5,000 units per week by the end of June of this year. Without question, the pressure is on for Tesla to deliver, which is why Elon Musk in recent weeks has taken to sleeping inside of Tesla's factory.
