Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a leaked email that the company plans to increase the production of electric vehicles in the fourth quarter of this year by nearly 20% from the previous quarter to achieve total production in 2020. Reach the goal of 500,000 vehicles.
Musk said in a new email sent to company employees that I think Tesla will be able to produce 500,000 electric vehicles in 2020.
He said in this email, “Since Tesla was founded, we have been able to achieve the goal of producing more than 500,000 electric vehicles for the first time. This will undoubtedly be difficult, but it is also very exciting. 16 years When I founded Tesla, I never thought we would achieve such a great achievement. However, due to your hard work and unique creativity, we actually have the opportunity to produce 500,000 cars within a year. “
Musk said that to achieve Tesla’s full-year production target for this year, the company’s production in the fourth quarter must increase. He said, “To achieve this year’s production target, we must do a good job in the fourth quarter. Please take the necessary measures to increase production while ensuring quality.”
In the first three quarters of this year, Tesla only produced 330,000 electric vehicles, which means that the company needs to produce 170,000 vehicles in the fourth quarter to achieve the goal of increasing production to 500,000 in 2020.
Tesla just announced that its third-quarter production set a new record, reaching 145,000 vehicles. That is to say, Tesla’s production growth rate in the fourth quarter will reach nearly 20%, which is undoubtedly a large and difficult task.
