Tesla Company (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk still hopes to provide a record number of cars this year.
what happened: Electric vehicle publication Electrek has obtained an email from Musk to Tesla employees. In it, he encouraged them to “go all out to achieve this goal,”
“Last two years ago, all critics said that we would never achieve this, and they also called our goal of reaching 500,000 in 2020 as “impossible.” With them, we are doing this!” Musk wrote.
The founder of this car manufacturer also asked Tesla’s employees to ensure that there are enough people at the “end of the production line” to deliver the car as soon as possible: “At the end of the production line, thank you very much for your help to ensure that the cars now produced can be delivered immediately. There is no need to make any further improvements to PDI, because there is simply not enough time to do so.” PDI may refer to pre-delivery inspections.
