Tesla halts Model 3 production for second time this year

HighLifeChannel April 18, 2018

Tesla has called a halt to production of its Model 3 electric sedan for the second time this year in another setback for Elon Musk’s first mass-production car, though said it will move to around-the-clock production once its sites reopen.

Production will stop at its factory in Fremont, California for four or five days as Tesla battles to meet ambitious targets set by billionaire Mr Musk. There is also planned downtime at its Gigafactory 1, the battery production facility in Nevada.

“These periods are used to improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks in order to increase production rates,” Tesla said.
