Musk urges Tesla staff to ‘do everything possible’ until end of second quarter: report

“It is very important that we do everything possible until the end of June 30 to ensure a good result. I would not mention this if it was not very important,” Musk said in the email.

The company also had to stop production at its Fremont, California facility due to the blockade imposed by Alameda County.

Operations at Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory halted briefly in May due to component shortages. The Shanghai store started operating normally just before the second quarter after COVID-19 outages for much of January and February.
