Tesla asks employees to help out with ‘too big’ deliveries

By Michael Elkins

Over the past year, Tesla (NASDAQ:) CEO Elon Musk has expressed his desire to move away from the company’s model that results in large delivery payments at the end of the quarter. This third quarter was expected to be more manageable. However, an email obtained by Electrek shows that the electric car maker is expecting another “high volume” end to the quarter. In order to achieve the delivery batch at the end of the quarter, Tesla is asking for help from employees.

The email reads: “We will be delivering a very large number of vehicles to eagerly awaited customers during the final days of Q3. To help ensure the greatest number of customers possible, the delivery team is requesting additional support in carrying out turnkey tasks.”

In the past, Tesla had everyone from engineers, managers, and even executives come into delivery centers to help out with tasks during end-of-quarter delivery batches. Tasks may include transporting vehicles, washing and equipping them, and even delivering vehicles to customers.

Analysts expect a record quarter for the company, with most estimates calling for a delivery of between 350,000 and 370,000 units. Tesla’s previous record of 310,000 units came in the first quarter of 2022.

Tesla is expected to announce delivery and production numbers over the weekend.

Shares of TSLA are up 2.13% in pre-market trading on Tuesday.
