Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed in a leaked email sent to company workers that there is an urgent need to address production related challenges of electric car Model Y and it is top priority for the automaker.

“It is extremely important for us to ramp up Model Y production and minimize rectification needs. I want you to know that it really makes a difference to Tesla right now,” Musk wrote in the email read by Business Insider.

Tesla is experiencing manufacturing and supply-chain difficulties involving the Model Y and workers have been urged to boost production of Model Y vehicles which may have suffered roadblocks because of the work suspension at the Fremont (California) plant located in the US.

“Model Y, especially GA (General Assembly), is the top priority for both production and manufacturing engineering. GA4 (stands for General Assembly Line 4) is also top priority for facility improvements. For those working in GA4, thank you for bearing with tough conditions. Will get better fast. I will be walking the line personally every week,” Musk added.

Model Y is automaker’s completely electric, mid-size SUV which can seat up to seven persons and boasts of dual-motor AWD capabilities.

Musk previously said he expects the Model Y to become the best-selling vehicle in the automaker’s history.

“We are doing reasonably well with S, X, and 3, but there are production and supply chain ramp challenges with Model Y, as is always the case for new products,” Musk said, referring to other models of the automaker.
