It is currently unclear if Tesla is aiming to produce its vehicles at this speed on a regular basis in the future.

The company also successfully produce 7,000 of its Model S and Model X vehicles within a week.

“7000 cars, 7 days” the CEO tweeted, expressing his appreciation for the “Tesla Team”.

“I think we just became a real car company,” Elon Musk wrote, Reuters claims.

The target was set after Tesla continued to push back its internal targets, which led to the firm committing to manufacture 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week in January.
