Multi-billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk said that Tesla has a chance to deliver at least 100,000 vehicles this quarter.

During the last quarter the company managed to deliver 95,200 vehicles to customers across the globe, which broke a record the company set in the fourth quarter of last year.

In an email sent to employees Musk said that the new record is within reach, Electrek reported on Thursday.

“We have a shot at achieving our first 100,000 vehicle delivery quarter, which is an incredibly exciting milestone for our company!” Musk said.

To attain this goal the automaker is focusing on getting as many vehicle’s into the hands of potential owners over the next five days.

“The challenge is making sure that we have the right car variants in the right locations and rallying as much of our company resources as possible to help with end of quarter deliveries,” Musk added.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has responded to environmental concerns including excessive water use for building the massive ‘Gigafactory 4’ near Berlin to produce electric cars for the European market, saying that such concerns were baseless.

The leading non-profit organization BUND (Friends of the Earth Germany) met Tesla officials last week to discuss possible environmental pollution from the planned Gigafactory.

“Sounds like we need to clear up a few things! Tesla won’t use this much net water on a daily basis. It’s possibly a rare peak usage case, but not an everyday event,” tweeted Musk.

“Also, this is not a natural forest a” it was planted for use as cardboard & only a small part will be used for GF4,” he added.

The site where the Gigafactory will be built has invited protests over concerns that the facility will excessively use water and cause deforestation by destroying 300 hectares of forest.

“Giga Berlin will build sustainable energy vehicles using sustainable energy, so net environmental impact will be extremely positive!” Musk said.
