Tesla’s initial production goals with the Model 3 were incredibly ambitious, with Elon Musk boasting that the company would be able to manufacture upwards of 20,000 units per month by the end of 2017. Tesla, of course, didn’t even come close to achieving its stated goal, despite pronouncements that the Model 3 would be a decidedly easier car to manufacture than the Model X and the Model S.
As we’ve since come to learn, the Model 3 was initially plagued by a number of manufacturing challenges that Tesla has since done a respectable job of overcoming. As it stands now, Tesla now maintains it will be able to manufacture 20,000 units by the end of June. Of course, with analysts and investors keeping a close eye on Tesla, any changes in Model 3 production naturally invites newfound optimism or skepticism regarding the company’s ability to aggressively ramp up production.
