Elon Musk, a co-founder and Chief Executive of the Californian e-vehicle industry trailblazer Tesla Inc., had urged employees to ‘go super hardcore’ to cover up production encounters faced off earlier in Q3, 2021 and to ‘ensure a decent Q3 delivery number,’ an internal email seen by a press agency reporter had unveiled late on Thursday.
In point of fact, latest remarks from Tesla Inc Chief Elon Musk, 50, the S. Africa-borne American billionaire business magnate and the world’s third-richest man to-date having had assets worth of $194.8 billion according to Forbes, came against a baleful backdrop in automotive industry supply chain in context of a clattering chip shortage that had prompted a number of Northern American carmaker to trim their annual outputs, while heavy-weight carmakers like of General Motors, Ford Motor Co alongside Hayundai among others had been forced to shut down parts of their US plants.
Nonetheless, Tesla Inc had posted record vehicle deliveries over fiscal second quarter of the year despite an ongoing chip shortage which had reportedly stretched into smartphones industry, too.

Concomitantly, Musk said in the email dated back to Wednesday, “The end of quarter delivery wave is unusually high this time, as we suffered (like the whole industry) from extremely severe parts shortages earlier this quarter.
Tesla built a lot of cars with missing parts that needed to be added later”. Besides, addressing to an end of quarter push for a higher delivery, Musk added, “This is the biggest wave in Tesla history, but we got to get it done”.
