Tesla Builds Its Own Car Carriers to Keep Up With Demand

Tesla starts building own car carrier trailers to cope with Model 3 delivery rush

Tesla starts building own car carrier trailers to cope with Model 3 delivery rush

In the automobile industry, shortages of carriers, trucks and trailers are already common, but Tesla's volume increase only brings it to the fore. Earlier this month, Musk said the company is on track for their most awesome quarter. The company is now facing an issue where they are running out of auto carriers.

The all-electric Tesla Model 3 is priced from US$35,000 (RM144,931) in the United States, with a battery range of 354 km.

Tesla, however, doesn't follow this kind of business model since it sells cars directly to the consumers. Customers in Los Angeles are receiving emails offering to deliver cars directly to their homes and offices for free.

In Q2, Tesla surprised the market and hit its target of producing 5,000 Model 3 sedans weekly, just as Musk had promised investors at the release of the company's Q1 financial results.

Trump Calls Second Kavanaugh Accuser 'All Messed Up' and 'Totally Inebriated'
Some in the White House expressed relief that Kavanaugh, 53, presented a positive image to counter the allegations. He also said he did not remember being at a party with her. "They're really con artists", Trump said of Democrats.

Tesla tsla has experimented with delivering cars directly from the factory to customers before-Musk himself made a delivery-but that was apparently limited to customers who were close to its Fremont factory. He has been under intense pressure to prove he can deliver consistent production numbers for the Model 3 sedan, which is seen crucial to Tesla's plan to become a mass-market automaker.

In a tweet, Musk wrote, "Wow, thanks for offering to help!"

As Q3 is winding down, Musk is hoping that Tesla Direct will encourage consumers to purchase Model 3s as soon as possible in order to take advantage of the convenient delivery option.

According to Bloomberg's Tesla Tracker, which tracks Model 3 output by analyzing vehicle registration data, government resources and speaking directly with Tesla customers, Tesla is building on average 3,104 Model 3's per week, well short of its goal of over 5,000 to 6,000 vehicles each week. The company said it was co-operating and that the matter "should be quickly resolved". In retrospect, this comes as good news especially to those who have always been waiting to get hold of their new Tesla.
