Tesla making 2,000 Model 3s per week -report

April 2 (Reuters) - Tesla Inc will fall short of its 2,500 per week target for production of the crucial Model 3 sedan when it reports its numbers this week, according to a report by tech website Jalopnik, citing an email from Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk to employees.

Musk told employees in a company-wide email on Monday that Tesla had just passed a rate of 2,000 per week, the report said. That was still a big increase from earlier production numbers and Tesla shares recovered some of Monday's heavy losses in reaction to the report. https://bit.ly/2uFdEBr
