Meanwhile, a message from Tesla's official Twitter account on Tuesday said that due to trouble processing an unusually high volume of online orders, a planned slight increase in prices of some models was postponed a day.
The news website posted a copy of an internal email from Musk rallying Tesla troops to pitch in with "a massive wave of deliveries" throughout Europe, China and North America.
In a Friday filing in Manhattan federal court, Musk's lawyers also said their client "respects his obligations" to the electric vehicle company, its shareholders and the court.
SEC spokesman Ryan White declined to comment.

National Football League season to open with Packers at Bears, Patriots on Sunday night
The matchup between the two blue-chip franchises will be the 199th meeting in their long-standing NFC North rivalry. Green Bay leads the all-time series - which began with Chicago's 20-0 shutout in 1921 - by a margin of 97-95-6.
Musk's lawyers included email communications and drafts of the original settlement, which show the SEC wanted all of Musk's public communications about Tesla, including tweets, to be approved by the company before publishing.
Musk was reportedly seeking volunteers to drive Tesla cars to destinations such as shipping points, but said he did not expect the delivery crunch to recur in future quarters. While speaking to the reporters Dan Ives said that the Model Y had great interior design and stated that the present endeavor of Tesla could be very profitable for the company. And he insists he was entitled to use his own judgment to determine the information was not material-and therefore didn't require pre-approval by Tesla's lawyers.
Musk has until March 26 to tell U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan whether he wants an evidentiary hearing on the contempt motion.
Musk disagrees. He argues that he was merely repeating Tesla's earlier production estimates. They are 32 percent below their peak set on August 7, after the "funding secured" tweet. Mr. Latham further said that SEC might try to find one case against Mr. Musk after other.
