Tesla Inc Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said on Monday production of the $35,000 version of the electric carmaker’s Model 3 will start this month, but would not reach “volume production” until mid-year.
"Gap in understanding is that $35k Model 3 production *starts* this month, but will not reach volume production until mid-year. Extremely difficult to predict middle part of manufacturing S-curve," Musk said in response to a tweet here.
It was not immediately clear what Musk meant by “volume production”. Tesla did not respond to a request for comment.
Tesla also said last week its global sales would now be online-only, in a bid to cut overhead costs.
