Tesla Inc. CEO Elon Musk sent an email to his employees congratulating them on progress made in manufacturing Model 3 and urging them to make “radical improvements” in the next two weeks in order to hit the company’s target of daily production of 700 or weekly production of 5,000 Model 3 cars by the end of this month.
“It’s getting very exciting! All parts of the Model 3 production system are now above 500 and some are almost at 700 cars already. Congratulations to all on making so much progress,” Musk said in an email that was given to CNBC by a Tesla employee.
The goal of 5,000 Model 3 cars by the end of June was set during the company’s annual shareholders meeting earlier this month and the company soon after began a broad restructuring, cutting at least 9% of its workforce, although no one involved in Model 3 production.
