Tesla Model 3 Performance: Musk announces more specs of future M3 rival

As electric auto manufacturer Tesla gets ready to deliver more and more of its mass-market Model 3 vehicle to waiting consumers, a new report sheds light on potentially unsafe working conditions at the company.

Musk was in China to discuss the plan to build Tesla's second factory with an annual capacity to build 5 lakh cars.

According to Bloomberg, Tesla may have delivered more vehicles to customers outside the U.S.in Q2 in order to avoid hitting the 200,000 US delivery cap in that quarter and hit the cap in Q3.

Meissner, a former Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan and Assistant New York State Attorney General, said Tesla filed its' lawsuit against Tripp and engaged in a PR campaign to defame him in a calculated effort to ruin his reputation and silence him and other potential Tesla whistleblowers from coming forward.

It is unclear if the phase-out will affect sales of the entry-level Model 3, which carries a $35,000 price tag but is not likely to begin rolling off the production line until next year.

However, things are not in very great shape at the moment for Tesla in the US.

Tesla's vehicle purchase incentives web page on Thursday morning reported that the wind-down of incentives for buyers of its cars has begun.

Incidentally, Musk about a year ago said that Model 3 production should reach 10,000 units per week before the end of 2018. Before long, any number of production hurdles rose to the surface, ultimately prompting Tesla to push back its 5,000 units per week goal by six months. Yeah, I've been sleeping on the factory floor, not because I think that's a fun place to sleep.

Those automakers like Tesla who were early to market would have a head start not only in building electric cars, but also in reducing their battery costs. But the joint statement described the plant as a Tesla "wholly owned Gigafactory".

Musk has lashed out at reporters and news outlets over troubling news about Tesla's Model 3 production and internal struggles.

It's never been a secret that the Model 3 has always been the lynchpin in Tesla's plan to fundamentally shake up the auto industry and kick the EV revolution into high gear. But Tesla faces growing competition from Chinese and foreign brands that are developing dozens of electric models.
