Tesla to cut production hours for Model S and X

(Reuters) - Tesla Inc is reducing production hours for its higher priced electric cars Model S and Model X to improve efficiencies, a Tesla spokesperson said on Wednesday.

The company, which has struggled to achieve long-term profitability, said last week it would cut thousands of jobs to rein in costs as it plans to increase production of lower-priced versions of its Model 3s.

Tesla shares fell 4.8 percent to $284.57.
