Tesla ramping towards 10,000 Model 3 cars every week in 2019

Bloomberg reports Panasonic is adding three battery production lines well before the end of 2018.

Tesla expects to increase its output for the vehicle to 10,000 units per week sometime next year and will start offering the $35,000 base Model 3 in a few months.

Grohmann Engineering will help Tesla battery module production become three times faster, and three times cheaper.

The new system will be sent to the Gigafactory by the end of Q3 or beginning of Q4. The Grohmann machine will be in Zones 1, 2, 3, and Tesla will be receiving three machines. The process was designed to alleviate the previous bottleneck in module production which delayed Model 3 production significantly. The machine is already built, and points to the advantage Tesla will have in building future Gigafactories.
