SAN FRANCISCO: Tesla Inc is not producing enough Model 3s per shift to reach the 5,000 per week target that Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said it would reach by Saturday, three line workers at the company's Fremont, California, assembly plant told Reuters this week.
The company was able to assemble and paint 210 Model 3s during the first of two 12-hour shifts on Wednesday, one worker told Reuters. On one of two Monday shifts, the company produced 305 of the vehicles, another worker told Reuters. The number of vehicles assembled per shift is displayed for line workers in the plant.
The company is running two 12-hour shifts per day every day this week on the Model 3, the two workers who produced the production figures said. If the company produces 300 models 3 vehicles during all 14 shifts, it would produce 4,200 cars for the week.
