Before the end of the year, Tesla has announced that it has “two most critical priorities” that it needs to fulfil before the end of the quarter.
With the end of the year looming and the end of the federal tax credit for EVs coming soon, Tesla is readying itself for one of the highest production periods of the company’s life. The Silicone Valley business sent out an email to its employees explaining the two priorities each employee will have to focus on to have a successful final quarter, Elektrek reported.
In this email, CEO Elon Musk said that he wanted all cars to be delivered by the end of the year. “The first [priority] is making sure all cars are delivered to their customers before end of year,” the email read.
With deliveries honing in on a record 97,000 last quarter, this year could be even higher if capacity is increased as much as Musk is wanting successfully.
The second focus is on Tesla’s solar mission. “The second, just as important, is that we immediately increase the rate of solar deployments by a significant degree.”
With 43 MW of installations last quarter of solar panels, Tesla is clawing its way back into the solar industry and eager to get on top. Earlier this year Tesla launched a strategy to get solar systems on customer’s houses for just $50 a month. With a push in commercial solar sales, too, and the addition of Tesla Solar Roof V3, Tesla is obviously making big steps to ensure it makes its mark on the market this year.
With an objective of 1,000 solar roofs a week, Elon believes the solar side of his Tesla may possibly outgrow the automotive side in the future.
It’s going to be a long and hard December, but the payoff will be incredible.
