Tesla stopped the production of the Model 3 compact electric sedan temporarily for four days to upgrade the production line and now the manufacturing process has resumed again. The production of the Model 3 sedan was stopped at both Fremont plant and in the Gigafactory 1 as well. With this upgradation of the production line, the American EV manufacturer is expected to boost the number of production of the Model 3.
Tesla set a goal of reaching the production mark of 2,500 units per week that is just a few weeks away from now. In this scenario, the upgradation of [production lines seems a desperate attempt to reach its own goal. The company was facing difficulty with its battery module production in Gigafactory 1, but with the upgraded production line, the problem is expected to be solved.
So far, Tesla was rolling out 1,000 units of the Model 3 sedans every week and with this latest upgrade, the company is boosting the number of production which is very important for the brand to achieve its target. Last year, Tesla expressed its ambition to take a strong position in the luxury car market with increased production number. Tesla Model 3 was supposed to play a very important role in that strategy.
Interestingly, Model 3 sedan is going to be the first Tesla car to be launched in India officially. Several Indian buyers have already booked the car since the booking of this model was started after unveiling. Model 3 comes available in two different range options and it is the most affordable car so far from the luxury EV manufacturer. The automaker also sells the zero emission cars like Model S and Model X.
