Tesla is having production problems with the Model Y, struggling to ramp to a pre-pandemic clip.
A letter to employees from Chief Executive Elon Musk said he’ll be walking the assembly line on a weekly basis to help troubleshoot problems.
“We are doing reasonably well with S, X and 3, but there are production and supply chain ramp challenges with Model Y, as is always the case for new products,” Musk wrote in the email first reported by Business Insider.
The Model Y is expected to be Tesla’s best-selling vehicle.

Subject: Model Y Production
It is extremely important for us to ramp up Model Y production and minimize rectification needs. I want you to know that it really makes a difference to Tesla right now.
Model Y, especially GA, is the top priority for both production and manufacturing engineering. GA4 is also top priority for facilities improvements. For those working in GA4, thank you for bearing with tough conditions. Will get better fast. I will be walking the line personally every week.
We are doing reasonably well with S, X, and 3, but there are production and supply chain ramp challenges with Model Y, as is always the case for new products.
Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.
