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!”

Musk also highlighted supplier issues in Europe which had further complicated the company’s delivery situation.

“According to the email, this is the ‘biggest wave in Tesla’s history’ and ‘won’t be repeated in subsequent quarters’,” the report said. (IANS)

For many of us, Tesla is a new entrant in the global auto industry but Elon Musk has actually become the longest serving CEO in today’s automotive segment.

The feat was achieved when then-Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche, serving as the German automaker’s CEO since 2006, retired in May this year, Teslarati reported on Wednesday.

Musk took over as the electric car maker’s CEO in 2008.

Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi saw veteran CEO Carlos Ghosn quitting over his alleged connection with a high-profile financial scandal.

Last month, Mitsubishi also announced the departure of its CEO Osamu Masuko.

BMW CEO Harald Kruger has also announced his retirement.

Many automakers have new CEOs and only Akio Toyoda of Toyota who joined in 2009 is close behind Musk.

Under Musk, Tesla is breaking all records. The electric car-maker achieved a record production of 87,048 vehicles and record deliveries of approximately 95,200 vehicles in the second quarter of 2019.

In the quarter (April-June 2019), Tesla produced new 72,531 Model 3 sedans and delivered 77,550 of those.
