The multinational reportedly lowered its weekly production target to 4,350 units for July and August and plans on further reducing production at its German facility in the coming weeks.

Note that the said plant had produced 5,000 vehicles per week in March.  

Tesla Inc is committed to increasing the production capacity of Giga Berlin to 1.0 million vehicles per year. Last month, though, CEO Elon Musk did forecast production to be slightly down in the current quarter as the company shuts down factories temporarily for upgrades.

FactSet consensus is for the EV giant to produce 473,000 cars in Q3.
