Tesla CEO Elon Musk is prioritizing on meeting its first quarter goal of car deliveries before March 31.

Before the end of the quarter, Tesla needs to deliver 30,000 more cars to meet its internal goals, media reported.

Under the subject line “Vehicle Delivery Help Needed!”, Musk reached out to his employees via an email sent on Thursday afternoon.

“Musk sent an email to all Tesla employees informing them that car deliveries should be everyone’s top priority until the end of the quarter on March 31,” Business Insider Malaysia reported on Thursday.

Last week, company Vice President Sanjay Shah sent an email to Tesla employees asking them to volunteer for extra shifts to deliver the vehicles on time.

“What has made this particularly difficult is that Europe and China are simultaneously experiencing the same massive increase in delivery volume that North America experienced last year,” the report quoted Musk as saying in the email.

“In some locations, the delivery rate is over 600 per cent higher than its previous peak!”

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.

The Berlin unit will manufacture SUV Model Y, which could go into production by 2021. The unit could initially employ 3,000 people. The headcount could rise to 7,000. (IANS)
