Tesla Inc. met its production target of 1,000 Model 3 cars per day, automotive website Electrek reported on Friday, citing an email to employees from company CEO Elon Musk.
The car was introduced to the public in early 2016 amid great fanfare, with repeated promises throughout 2017 that Tesla was on track to build 5,000 Model 3s per week by the end of that year.
Despite the electric automaker's production milestone for the sedan, the company still needs to demonstrate if it can sustain that level of output.
The company in the past has struggled with achieving goals for Model 3 output, blaming production bottlenecks.
Tesla, which managed to turn a profit in the third quarter, has promised to post another profit in the current quarter.
Tesla did not immediately respond to Reuters request for a comment.
