As it stands now, Model 3 production is still far behind the ambitious schedule Elon Musk and other Tesla executives touted early on. While Tesla was initially hoping to manufacture 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by December of 2017, the company is now aiming to meet that threshold by June of 2018.
That notwithstanding, Tesla has managed to ramp up production quite a bit in recent weeks. Despite a slow start, Tesla during its recent earnings report relayed that weekly production now stands at about 1,000 units per week. Interestingly enough, Tesla in a press release last week said that the company wants to "focus on quality and efficiency rather than simply pushing for the highest possible volume in the shortest period of time."
