Tesla opens orders to all US and Canadian Model 3 reservation holders – Ars Technica

For people who put down a $1,000 deposit for a Tesla Model 3 as long as two years ago, the big day has arrived. Days before the end of the second quarter, Tesla is now allowing all reservation holders in the United States and Canada to place orders for the Model 3. That rate of production could allow Tesla to fulfill a lot of the orders that flood in this week in the coming months. The good news for North American customers, though, is that Tesla hasn't yet opened up ordering to all reservation holders overseas. The money effectively acts as a short-term loan from customers, helping Tesla cover its costs as it ramps up to high-volume production.

Will Tesla hit its Model 3 goal? Tesla's CEO Elon Musk promised production levels for the Model 3 would reach 5,000 by the end of June.

Elon Musk shares rare images of Model 3 production in factory as Tesla makes end-of-quarter push

referring to Tesla CEO Elon Musk is spending the last few days of the second quarter at the Fremont factory in order to oversee the automaker's end-of-the-quarter push to achieve a production rate of 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week. Without disclosing the production rate, Musk shared a few rare images from inside the factory. Musk is back to sleeping at the factory and even spent his birthday on the factory floor. Historically, Tesla has achieved its highest production day during the very last day of the quarter and then extrapolated that production rate to a full week. As for the images, we can't really infer much information about the production from them, but it still fun to see rare new images from inside the plant.
