    The success of the Model 3’s production plan is highly important not only to Tesla, but to the ~400,000 people who by pre-ordering the vehicle are now planning their next car purchase around the release of the Model 3. If Tesla starts volume production in late 2017 and manages to manufacture 500,000 vehicles (Model 3, S and X) in 2018 as planned, the automaker will work through its backlog fairly quickly and everything should work out fine.

    It should be noted in this article that Electrek is basing their thinking on 6 weeks from the date that Elon was on the Recode conference and not something that was confirmed by him or Tesla.
