"...In 2016, Musk and Tesla said it planned to produce 500,000 cars of all models by the end of 2018. The company said Wednesday it plans on making 5,000 cars a week “at some point this year” and 10,000 cars a week “at some point next year.” In other words, total production of Models S, X and 3 could range between 260,000 and 520,000 cars in 2018.
If Tesla produces 100,000 Model S and Model X luxury cars in 2018, as it plans to do this year, the low-end estimate leaves 160,000 Model 3s. So more than half of those who put down deposits could be waiting until 2019 or beyond to receive their automobiles."
As I'm a later reservationist, here's to hoping Elon is under-promising and over-delivering.
