Tesla has reportedly sent out another batch of Model 3 configuration invites this week
Tesla Motors is moving ahead with its target production numbers for Model 3 after CEO Elon Musk started monitoring the process closely. According to latest reports, Model 3 configuration invites have been sent out by Tesla Motors despite a temporary production shutdown of the vehicle this week.
Tesla had announced a few days back that the production of Model 3 units was being temporarily shut down by the company this week in order to update the line so that the production capacity for the vehicles can be increased.
In spite of the earlier-announced Model 3 production downtime this week, reports have revealed that another batch of Model 3 configuration invites were sent out by Tesla over the last two days.
A number of reservation holders for Model 3 across the US have disclosed that they have received the invites over the past couple of days. Incidentally, most of the Model 3 reservation holders who have received the invites this week are first-day reservation holders.
Tesla had previously received complaints from several first-day reservation holders in the US that they have not yet received Model 3 configuration invites. In response to the complaints, Tesla CEO Elon Musk had said that there was some issue with the invite rollout which is being fixed by the company. Though the issue is still not fully resolved, it appears that there has been a significant improvement over the last week since many of the first-day reservation holders have received the invites in the past two days.
