“The email, reportedly sent to all employees, sounded a strong call to action to get Tesla’s auto production numbers up to expectations,” CNBC said.
The memo noted that while Model 3 production numbers are still below where the company wants them — shy of 2,500 as of last week — the business also expects that the temporary shut-down will result in crucial improvements, boosting production to 3,000 to 4,000 models a week by May.
The company’s factories will move to around-the-clock production, the email reportedly said.
“As part of the drive toward 6k, all Model 3 production in Fremont will move to 24/7 operations,” Musk wrote in the email.
In the past, Jeff Daochuan Liu, president of Fuyao Glass America in Moraine, has talked of approaching "high-value customers" such as Tesla to supply them auto safety glass, Fuyao's main product. Fuyao has about 2,000 Dayton-area employees.
Investors have closely watched production of the Model 3.
