Mass production of the Model 3 is still on track to begin in July, says Tesla. In the company’s Q1 earnings report, it mentioned it’d begin building the car at a rate of 5,000 vehicles per week in July. That’ll grow to 10,000 per week in 2018.
Many customers have already preordered the less expensive electric vehicle. Some of those orders could be filled this year.
It’s also announced it’s expanding its service department to include 100 new “retail, delivery and service locations” around the globe. Those are joined by the first ever Tesla-owned body shops. With those locations, it should be easier for people to get their vehicles serviced.
