As we suspected after Tesla employees were spotted celebrating earlier today, Tesla has achieved its Model 3 production milestone of 5,000 units in a week, according to CEO Elon Musk.
The company also achieved a new record overall production with 7,000 cars in a week.
The CEO made the announcement in an email to employees today obtained by Electrek.
In the email, Musk is congratulating employees for the effort it took to get there:
“We did it! What an incredible job by an amazing team. Couldn’t be more proud to work with you. It is an honor.
The level of dedication and creativity was mind-blowing. We either found a way or, by will and inventiveness, created entirely new solutions that were thought impossible.”
Musk, who just celebrated his 47th birthday on the factory floor, gave examples like the new general assembly line inside the tent and “transporting entire production lines across the world in massive cargo planes.”
The CEO then confirmed the achievements:
“Not only did we factory gate 5000 Model 3’s, but we also achieved the S & X production target for a combined 7000 vehicle week!”
Tesla had already achieved S & X production of over 2,000 units per week, but they are now apparently able to maintain that while making 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week.
The story is still developing…
