Elon Musk sent out one of his signature "all" emails Tuesday, circulated to tens of thousands of Tesla employees.
In it, the CEOs asserted employees to work hard to beat the company's aggressive vehicles Second quarter production and delivery targets.
It is typical of Tesla Execs, and Musk, to push employees to work long hours to meet quarterly goals, with additional production and delivery work rising towards the end of the quarter. 1
"We believe we will deliver between 90,000 and 100,000 cars in the second quarter. Although it is possible to deliver a higher number of cars, we believe it is important to begin to wind up the "wave" approach to vehicle deliveries, where overseas has been produced in the first half of the quarter and North American cars have been made in the second half, putting extreme stress on Tesla, adversely affecting our working capital and adding to our cost structure . "
Earlier this month, Musk asked people to buy Tesla cars, with a Twitter post reminding them that" US federal tax falls by $ 1875 for some Tesla delivered after June 30. " This is what Musk wrote in the email sent Tuesday, achieved and transcribed by CNBC. Bloomberg first reported on the email.

As you may have noticed, there is a lot of speculation about vehicle delivery in the quarter. The reality is that we are on our way to posting a full-time post, but it will be very close. But if we go out, we can definitely do it!
We already have enough vehicle orders to put in a record, but the right cars are not yet in the right places. Logistics and final delivery are extremely important, as well as demand for vehicle variants available locally, but cannot reach people who ordered that variant before the end of the quarter.
I have great faith in you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
