Tesla now in ‘delivery logistics hell’, says Musk

Tesla is currently struggling more with delivery logistics problems rather than production delays, according to the electric carmaker’s embattled CEO Elon Musk.

“Sorry, we’ve gone from production hell to delivery logistics hell, but this problem is far more tractable,” Musk said in a tweet on Sunday, in response to a customer complaint on delivery delay.

Acknowledging delivery bottlenecks, Musk promised to swiftly iron out the delays, Reuters reports.

“We’re making rapid progress. Should be solved shortly,” the CEO said.

Musk has indicated in the past that Tesla’s customers may face a longer response time because of a significant increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America.

Tesla’s ability to deliver on production targets has weighed on its stock, and the company has been working to iron out bumps after failing to meet production targets for its Model 3 sedans.

The firm has eliminated some color options for its cars to streamline operations to ramp up production.

Musk also tweeted on Sunday that Tesla would bring most collision repairs in-house, saying owners were experiencing excessive wait times at body shops.
