Tesla almost produced 5,000 Model 3 electric sedans in the last week of its second quarter, with the final vehicle rolling off the assembly line on Sunday morning, several hours after the midnight goal set by CEO Elon Musk, two workers at the factory told Reuters. Model 3 Dual Motor All Wheel Drive and Model 3 Dual Motor All Wheel Drive Performance cars will also be available in our stores shortly.

GA4, our new General Assembly line for Model 3, was responsible for roughly 20% of Model 3s produced last week, with quality from that line being as good as our regular GA3 line.

"What's more, with the widespread productivity gains throughout Tesla and the new production lines spooling up, we are on track to reach 6K/week for Model 3 next month".

"7000 cars, 7 days", Elon Musk, chief executive of the electric automaker said on Twitter to mark the Model 3 milestone as well as its other goal of 7,000 Model S and X cars.

Russian Federation beats Spain on penalties to reach World Cup quarters
Hosts Russia advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals on penalties after a 1-1 draw on a dramatic afternoon in Moscow . After winning 2 out of 3 in the Group Stage, they were unlucky to match up against Spain in the knockout phase.

Mr Musk said the company hit its target of 5,000 Model 3s in a week, according to an email sent to employees on Sunday afternoon and seen by Reuters. "What an incredible job by an wonderful team". In the email, Musk noted that the company had also achieved its production goals of 7,000 Model S and X vehicles in that same week. Couldn't be more proud to work with you. "We either found a way or, by will and inventiveness, created entirely new solutions that were thought impossible".

"We did it!" Musk wrote in an email to the company, as reported on the website Electrek, which follows Tesla closely. Having blamed delays on "excessive automation" and being forced to conduct several shutdowns to correct issues, Tesla built a large, semi-permanent tent at the factory to house another assembly line. Intense in tents. Transporting entire production lines across the world in massive cargo planes.

Tesla's VIN registrations for the Model 3 had seen a meteoric rise since May, when the electric auto and energy company started filing for large batches of the vehicle identification numbers. It's also unclear how much longer the company will need this line and the tent, or if more outdoor assembly systems will be necessary to reach future targets.

The remaining net Model 3 reservations count at the end of Q2 still stood at roughly 420,000 even though we have now delivered 28,386 Model 3 vehicles to date. The high number of customer vehicles in transit for Model 3 was primarily due to a significant increase in production towards the end of the quarter. "Though the production hiccups have led to tumultuous periods for the shares, they're now up 10% this year, and the company is valued at $58.2 billion".
