Tesla Model 3 Production Will Incur Delays; Find Out The Reason Why
Industry observers believed that the 2017 Tesla Model 3 production will incur delays. They cite a number of reasons why.
Scepticism On Production Goal
Some industry analysts doubt that Tesla can keep its Model 3 production target. CNBC reported that the electric car company failed to keep its 2016 production goal. Originally, 80,000 vehicles was the goal but only managed to produce 76,230 plus the 2,750 models that incurred delays. These electric vehicles are comprised mainly of S and X models.
Stock analyst Brian Johnson claimed that Tesla is unlikely to deliver any Model 3 vehicle this year, according to CNBC. It's the first time that the company will manufacture this particular electric car. Elon Musk is facing various challenges in the making of this car. Ironically, strong demand for Tesla's vehicles is compounding the company's production abilities. Johnson also believes that the company will announced some sort of delay sometime this year.
