As we know, Tesla’s Q2 2019 financial figures were not released yet. Even so, the company came up with an important announcement saying the company produced 7,048 cars and delivered 95,200 to customers in the second quarter.
Since the demand is still high, Tesla is ready to step up and make Q3 even more successful than it was in the quarter before.
Currently, the company’s’s goal is to increase production at its plant in Fremont, California, as Bloomberg reports, according to an internal email from Jerome Guillen, Tesla’s president of automotive. His email suggested the company is “making preparations” for the production push, but it didn’t go into the details.
Of course,a bigger production will demand for more resources. On that note, Guillen’s email seems to confirm this fact: “As we continue to ramp up production, please tell your friends and neighbors that we have lots of exciting new positions open, both in Fremont and at Gigafactory, the company’s battery plant in Nevada.”
This comes as a bit of a surprise though, considering Tesla CEO Elon Musk put forth a number of job cuts earlier this year.
According to Bloomberg, Tesla’s least expensive Model 3 will prop the company up amid middling demand for its larger cars, the Model S and Model X.
Despite the trend that automakers adopted lately – refreshing older models, physically or in any other way – Elon Musk decided to go against the wave and said on Twitter that there will be no “refreshed” Model S or X.
That doesn’t mean Tesla is putting its bigger cars on hold. Back in April, the company announced that it would launch a host of changes to both vehicles. Model S benefited from changes which raised its maximum range to 370 miles, while Model X’s range now goes 325 miles.
According to Tim Stevens, the revised Model S could benefit from a visual reboot, like ventilated seats or a surround-view camera system.
