Tesla Celebrates Building of 1,000th Model S Frame
For the doubters, who never expected Tesla to make it, this is proof that the American company is still hard at work, trying to achieve its projected sales/deliveries figure for this year. Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has tweeted on his account, that the company has built its 1,000th Model S frame.
They were planning on building 5,000 complete cars by the end of the year, and the fact that they managed to build more frames in one month (October), than they managed to do in the entire year so far shows that they are hard at work trying to get as close to the projected figure as possible. Musk admitted that they are one month behind schedule on deliveries, yet this is by no means a critical threshold.
The company also reported that they will be getting a $10-million injection of funds, in order to expand its production facility in their Bay Area plant, where they will begin production of the Model X SUV, hopefully some time in 2014.
