Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said on multiple occasions in the past year that the target was to start production of the Tesla Model 3 in July.
When he first said this (on one of Tesla’s quarterly conference calls), he was very hesitant to say it because he indicated it was a strict target for suppliers specifically because they knew not all suppliers would end up meeting the target.
Even with all of that laid out many months ago, a ton of people figured Tesla would be way behind schedule manufacturing the Model 3, that manufacturing wouldn’t really start till 2018 even, or 2020.
We don’t have a date for the final unveiling event, where the first production Model 3s will be delivered, but Elon noted that it would be in July … this month.
