Melissa Nann Burke The Detroit News Published 12:34 PM EDT Oct 7, 2018 Republican U.S. Rep.

Tesla will operate its assembly plant in California “24/7" as part of an effort to ramp up production of the Model 3 sedan to 6,000 units per week by June, CEO Elon Musk told the company Tuesday, in an email obtained by Jalopnik. In a lengthy email sent around 12:30 p.m. Pacific on Tuesday, Musk laid out a number of changes that covered production of the Model 3 to expenditures over the coming year, as Tesla attempts to achieve sustained profitability by the end of 2018.
