Tesla Model 3 production reaches 2,000 units per week

The company is now making 4,000 vehicles per week, including the Model S and X.

Tesla has finally brought Model 3 production to 2,000 units per week, though the achievement may not be a consistent baseline just yet.

"It has been extremely difficult to pass the 2,000 cars per week rate for Model 3, but we are finally there," CEO Elon Musk wrote in a late-night e-mail to employees.

The executive voiced confidence that the Fremont factory can "comfortably exceed that number over a seven-day period," suggesting the 2,000-unit 'rate' may have been an extrapolation from a single day's exceptional output.

Recent reports suggest the company may be reassigning workers from the Model S and X lines in certain circumstances to help achieve the Model 3 output milestones.

The company's latest official guidance targeted 2,500 units per week by the end of the first quarter.
