3 cars per week
Tesla reports that in the last week of March a total of 2020 models of the Model 3 car have been built, with which the target number of 2500 cars per week has not been reached. Tesla’s highly automated production process and problems with battery production play a part in this.
According to the American car manufacturer, about 2020 copies of the Model 3 will also be built in the first week of April, after which this weekly number will increase rapidly during the second quarter of this year, according to the website Electrek.
Tesla has previously stated that the fact that the set production numbers of the Model 3 have not been achieved is related, among other things, to the commissioning of a highly automated production process and problems with battery production. Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced last November to the Washington Post , among other things, that the cause was partly the robots of his battery factory Gigafactory 1. However, it also seems that the Model 3 is made of a lot of steel, which requires more welding. The Model S and X are more aluminum.
Even though Tesla has not achieved its stated goal of 2500 weekly produced Model 3’s, it is a lot better than at the end of last year. In the last seven days of the last quarter of 2017, the manufacturer built a total of 793 copies of the Model 3.
With this number of 2020 built Model 3’s in the past week, the total number of cars produced in this model has risen to 9,766 in the past quarter. When all models are added together, Tesla produced a total of 34,494 cars in the first quarter of this year. The remaining 24,728 built cars were of type Model S and Model X. The production of the cheaper Model 3 started in July last year, at the beginning of the third quarter.
