Tesla push for 5,000 Model 3s per week left many unfinished

At the end of June, Tesla pushed hard to finish 5,000 Model 3s a week. It may have pushed too hard.

New internal documents acquired and reported by Business Insider show that of the 5,031 cars produced in the last week of June, 4,300 had some problem that required rework.

In auto industry terminology, the percentage of cars that pass company inspections as they come of the assembly line is called the “first pass yield.”

Industry experts noted than the industry average first-pass yield ranges from 65 to 80 percent. In the last week of June, Tesla’s was 14 percent.
