Tesla hits Model 3 production target, backs profit view

Tesla hits Model 3 production target, backs profit viewTesla, which Chief Executive Elon Musk hailed on Sunday as having become a “real car company,” said it now expects to boost production to 6,000 Model 3s per week by late August, signaling confidence about resolving technical and assembly issues that have plagued the company for months. The electric carmaker’s shares rose as much as 6.4 percent to $ 364.78 in early trading, after Tesla said it produced 5,031 Model 3 cars in the last seven days of the second quarter. Money-losing Tesla has been burning through cash to produce the Model 3, and delays have also potentially compromised Tesla’s first-to-market position for a mid-priced, long-range battery electric car as a host of competitors prepare to launch rival vehicles.

Tesla cutting 9% of staff; layoffs not to affect Model 3 production

Tesla cutting 9% of staff; layoffs not to affect Model 3 productionElectric carmaker Tesla Motors announced Tuesday it was cutting nine percent of its workforce to enhance profitability but said the move would not affect an ambitious production ramp-up of its Model 3 sedan. The job cuts are part of a company-wide restructuring to address excess staff in some areas due to the company’s speedy growth, Tesla chief Elon Musk said in an email to employees. The cuts concern salaried staff but not production workers and will not affect Model 3 output targets, said Musk, who characterized the downsizing as an acknowledgement of the need to focus more on costs.

Tesla Model Y coming in 2020; Roadster and Semi still on the way, says MuskTesla CEO Elon Musk told shareholders Tuesday that the last few months have been “hellacious” for building the Tesla Model 3, but that the automaker expects by the end of this month to build 5,000 of the mid-size luxury sedan each week and beyond. The Model 3 may be critical for the automaker to stay alive without turning to investors for more money this year, but the upcoming Tesla Model Y crossover could be critical to vault the automaker’s bottom line beyond survival. Musk told shareholders that the Tesla Model Y would be unveiled in March 2019 with production in early 2020.
