On Monday October 2nd, 2017 Tesla reported that they produced 260 of their new Model 3 electric cars in the third quarter dramatically missing CEO Elon Musk’s forecast of producing more than 1,600 cars by September 2017. Earlier in year, Musk sent out a product update for the Model 3 cars, these product updates started that they had passed all regulatory requirements way ahead of schedule.
Musk was setting the bar high and leaving no room for error. This proved to be a mistake as we can see that the production numbers of the Model 3 were predicted to be around 1,630 vehicles, he was 84% short of his prediction.
Tesla have said that they are “confident of addressing the manufacturing bottleneck issues in the near-term”, although they didn’t provide an updated prediction for its future production capacity.
