If Elon Musk’s master plan goes according to program, the world will quickly be saturated with millions of Model three units driving about with or without having their drivers. Until not too long ago, nevertheless, such a scenario seemed to be restricted to the future, due to Tesla’s notorious reputation for delaying the deliveries of its vehicles.
During the official delivery event of the 1st production-grade units of the Tesla Model three, CEO Elon Musk admitted that the carmaker would be experiencing its own version of manufacturing hell. Considering that Musk is aiming to generate 1,000 Model three automobiles by the finish of September and 20,000 autos monthly by the end of 2017, the reservations about the mass-market place EV’s delivery timeline are entirely understandable.
According to a Tesla enthusiast and SpaceX employee, even so, the Model 3’s production seems to be going quite well. So effectively, in fact, that the delivery of a Model three unit that was originally scheduled for October-December 2017 was bumped up to the finish of September, according to a CleanTechnica report.
Announcing the update on the Tesla Model 3 Owners Club forums, the SpaceX employee stated that he lately received a contact from the EV maker stating that the tentative delivery for his ordered car had been changed. This timeline, of course, is quite surprising, specifically considering Tesla’s reputation for its deliveries.
“Just got the contact from Tesla nowadays about my Model 3 delivery! My Tesla account says Oct-Dec delivery and they told me that I will much more than most likely have the automobile by the finish of this month!”
If the SpaceX employee’s Model 3 does get delivered by the finish of September, it would imply that the mass-marketplace EV’s production schedule is actually moving about 1 to 3 months ahead of schedule. This is unprecedented in Tesla’s quick tenure in the automotive business, particularly because the Model three is the carmaker’s very first attempt at manufacturing such a massive quantity of autos simultaneously.
Previous Tesla automobiles like the Model S and Model X[four] have skilled delays during their respective delivery timelines, with the latter becoming infamous for getting delivered to buyers months later than initially scheduled. With the Model three, however, Tesla seemed to have learned its lesson effectively, and it is approaching the manufacturing approach of the automobile from an additional angle.
