“The new Model 3, crucial to the company’s success, won’t hit full-scale production until the end of June, Tesla said last week — nearly a year after the company began manufacturing the car in small numbers.”
“Throughout last year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk trumpeted a production level of 5,000 a week by December 2017. In November, he pushed that goal to the end of March 2018. Now that target won’t be hit until the end of June. The electric-car maker said in an online statement January 3 that it expects to produce 2,500 a week by the end of March.”
“Only 1,550 Model 3s were delivered in 2017’s fourth quarter. That’s on top of the 220 Model 3s the company delivered in the third quarter, for a total of just 1,770 since the first deliveries in late July.”
Goal of 5000 a week and actual delivery of 1550 for a quarter.
Missed it by that much……………
Tesla can best be summed up with this Monty Python bit:
Almost every weekend for the past two months has been wet and cold and I had not the chance to do a final mow and rake leaves.
But last week I did have have a mighty fine weekend and got almost all of the work done. I mowed the yard three times: once high, once normal and a third time low with the mulching bag on. I ended up with a great mix of fresh green clippings with dead and finely shredded leaves.
If you watched the video, you would have seen the steam coming out when I turned the pile over. I will try to turn the pile at least every other day until it freezes.
