Elon Musk expects that the annual production of electric cars Tesla in the end of 2019 will reach about 500 000 vehicles. This means that the company will produce about 10,000 cars a week.
Meant to say annualized production rate at end of 2019 probably around 500k, ie 10k cars/week. Deliveries for year still estimated to be about 400k.

The main production will be concentrated at the Tesla factory in Fremont, but towards the end of the year, a small rate of production Tesla Model 3 could begin in China.
Recall that in 2018, Tesla has released 254 530 EV 152% more than in 2017, shipments in 2018 reaching 245 506 (an increase of 138%). In 2019, the company plans to increase the total number of customers up to 400 000 vehicles.
It is assumed that the company can produce about 8 000 cars per week (S, X and 3), which is not too far from the target of 10 000 units, which will help to achieve the half-million production in a year.
Overall, in the short term the company’s share in the world market of electric cars will continue to increase. As stated in a recent interview, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, in the context of a global increase of the electric car market, the company will manufacture 1.5 million EVS by 2021 and 3 million by 2023.
We will remind, the other day Elon Musk showed on photos 4000 models ready to ship for delivery to Europe.
