Tesla wants to increase the production of the model S


It seems that Tesla specialists want to increase the annual production of the Model S. Not long ago Tesla officials said they want to manufacture 5.000 units of the model S before the end of 2012, even if the first plans were to deliver only 500 units with no quality problems. For next year the Tesla Models S production will be increased to 20.000 cars per year. Things will change if demand continues in the same pace in 2013. The specialists will have to increase the production rate by 50% to make sure they cover the demand. So far, the buyers have to wait between 10-11 months to get the keys of their new electric sedan model. Even if Tesla Motors received positive feedback after the launch of the Model S, the carmaker suffered a net loss of $105.6 for the second quarter of 2012. This is actually a lot more in comparison with last year when the loss reached $58.9 million. Before the development of the Model S, the carmaker used as source of income the Roadster. Now, they stopped building it. The specialists also sold their electric drive-train technology to different other carmakers like the Japanese Toyota and German Mercedes-Benz. For now, their plans are to expand their lineup very soon by launching the Model X crossover which is expected to have its debut in 2014. This is not all. Tesla Motors also wants to build a smaller sedan, a model that will used the third-generation platform developed by Tesla. Before all this turns into reality, the carmaker will have to raise money and only after they do, they can think of the future models. The Model S is under pressure now.
