Elon Musk: Teslas Will Soon Follow Their Owners 'Like a Pet'

Tesla plans to produce Model 3 sedans in China to limit impact of tariffs

In Tesla's fourth quarter update of 2017, the company revised the forecast and said "We continue to target weekly Model 3 production rates of 2,500 by the end of Q1 and 5,000 by the end of Q2".

Department of Justice prosecutors have also asked for the company to provide information about production numbers, according to Tesla, although it stopped short of issuing a formal subpoena.

Last month, the electric auto maker announced a version of "Model 3" with a new "mid-range" battery pack for $45,000 before incentives.

The subpoena confirms that the SEC is investigating the company's production claims.

The company originally said in its third-quarter earnings call a year ago that it would reach full production of 5,000 Model 3s per week in the first quarter of 2018.

Elon Musk is serious about plans for a Tesla (TSLA) pickup truck, and says it's going to look like something out of the sci-fi movie "Blade Runner".

Prof David Bailey, an automotive industry expert at Aston University, said: "The pictures suggest big rework and rectification issues with vehicles coming off the production line".

"There's not many products you can buy that really make you happier", Musk said.

In an interview with the tech news website Recode, he added that he "probably would not" take money from Saudi Arabia after the alleged murder of Jamal Khashoggi last month. Neither Musk nor Tesla admitted wrongdoing in the settlement.
