Tesla Inc is making its own car carriers, as the electric automaker deals with vehicle distribution problems.
The company is upgrading its logistics system but going into an “extreme” shortage of car carrier trailers, CEO Elon Musk tweeted on Monday in response to a client, who placed order for a Model 3 All Wheel Drive (AWD) in June but has yet to get the car.
“Started building our own car carriers this weekend to alleviate load,” Musk stated.
Previously this month, Musk acknowledged that the company was dealing with more logistical problems now than production delays. He has been under intense pressure to establish that he can provide consistent production numbers for the Model 3 sedan, which is seen important to Tesla’s plan to become a mass-market automaker.
