Musk wrote in a series of tweets that the Consumer Reports evaluation of Model 3 differed from other reviewers' experiences and said that the magazine had taken delivery of an early-production vehicle.
Musk's leaked email further noted that a shutdown in April was expected to enable the company to hit a production rate of 3,000-4,000 Model 3 per week. While the first quarter financial figures were disappointing for Tesla, the company claims that Model 3 is "already on the cusp of becoming the best-selling mid-sized premium sedan in the U.S.". "You lost your credibility a long time ago". That assumes, of course, that Tesla meets that June timeline for 5,000 units per week, something that has eluded the company.
With recent news that many of those worries have been taken care of and Tesla is all set to bump up the auto production to 3,500 units per week, it could lead to peak sales across the nation.
In the past, UAW President Dennis Williams said that they were "respecting Tesla's startup status", but they started seeking to get involved apparently since Tesla started increasing its production capacity with the Model 3 and growing its workforce at the Fremont factory with it - now with about 10,000 employees. The Model 3 Performance, on the other hand, will cost $78,000 with all options except Autopilot, while boasting a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds, a top speed of 155 mph, and a range of 310 miles per charge. The added production appears at odds with the CEO's comments to smooth out production before adding additional variants like the affordable base Model 3.

In the meantime, Tesla received a blow from Consumer Reports.
The electric vehicle company has struggled to meet demand, and its own production targets. The Model 3 performed poorly in brake tests, which led to a series of new Tweets from Musk. According to Musk, a fix could be as simple as a firmware update.
However, he also backpedaled to tweet, "Even if a physical upgrade is needed to existing fleet, we will make sure all Model 3's having unbelievable braking ability at no expense to customers".
