Tesla Misses Model 3 Production Goal of 6,000 Units Per Week
September 5, 2018—Tesla has been aiming for a production rate of 6,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by the end of August and an overall production of 50,000 to 55,000 Model 3 vehicles throughout the third quarter, reported Electrek. Electrek has learned that the automaker missed the 6,000 unit production rate goal, but Tesla is nonetheless on track for its overall third quarter goal.
The automaker built about 6,400 vehicles during the last week of August, including about 4,300 Model 3 vehicles, according to the report.
That’s behind Tesla’s goal since the automaker previously disclosed that it was pushing for 6,000 units per week by the end of August.
Overall production for the quarter is now trending toward Tesla’s quarterly goal.
The automaker has already produced the same amount of vehicles as the entire last quarter with still a full month to go in the third quarter.
At the current production rate, Tesla should achieve at least the lower-end of their Model 3 production guidance, but the company is still attempting to ramp up to 6,000 units per week, which could result in better overall production if achieved by the end of the month.
