Tesla produced 7,400 Model 3s as the quarter kicks off, report says
- Tesla made 7,400 Model 3 midsize sedans in less than two weeks, according to a report in Electrek, citing sources.
- Overall, the automaker has made 11,500 cars total in the early days of the quarter, Electrek said.
The total reflected production from the start of the quarter until early Friday, which would mean Tesla is approaching its goal of 5,000 cars per week. Notably, the rate comes despite a slow down in production at the start of the month, the report said.

Tesla has struggled with production on the Model 3 in the past. It had originally aimed to make 5,000 cars a week at the end of 2017 but did not reach that goal until the end of the second quarter this year. However the company did deliver more vehicles in the third quarter than analysts expected. At the time, the automaker said production had stabilized.
Tesla declined to comment.
