Tesla Paused Production on the Model 3 to Update Automation
In February, Tesla paused production of its Model 3 Electric for a period of four days to improve its automation. “Our Model 3 production plan includes periods of planned downtime in both Fremont and Gigafactory 1. These periods are used to improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks in order to increase production rates,” a Tesla spokesperson said in an email to Reuters.
The company said it has plans for production rates of 2,500 per week by the end of the first quarter and 5,000 by the end of the second quarter. As Tesla Model 3 production to date has reportedly been limited, primarily due to a battery-pack assembly bottleneck, the production pause is unlikely to limit total Model 3 production and deliveries at all.
“We are taking many actions to systematically address bottlenecks and add capacity in places like the battery module line where we have experienced constraints, and these actions should result in our production rate significantly increasing during the rest of the first quarter and through the second quarter,” Tesla said in the note to shareholders.
