Tesla's weekend gets pretty crazy as they try to deliver an incredible number of cars for the end of the quarter.
The company is fully on deck as many non-retail employees report to drive supplies to a new record.
Tesla's Record Goal
In recent weeks, CEO Elon Musk has announced that Tesla is within reach of a new record quarter for deliveries. However, there are some obstacles to overcome.
As we reported earlier this month, Tesla intends to deliver between 33,000 and 36,000 vehicles in North America in June to break its delivery record.
The company also provides incentives for employees in order to motivate them to achieve the goal.
Tesla Q2 201
Over the past few weeks, we've updated readers with data on the progress of North American deliveries to reach a record high this quarter.
Earlier this month, we reported that Tesla averaged nearly 1,000 deliveries per day on the market.
Last week, Tesla's planned deliveries exceeded 1,000 units a day for the first time.
Earlier this week, we reported that Tesla had delivered over 49,000 vehicles in North America during the second quarter, and was seeking to deliver another 12,000 orders in the final days of the quarter.
As Musk confirmed the next day, Tesla has confirmed this All the orders it takes to reach the record, but the logistics to bring the vehicles to the customers is the bottleneck.
The CEO encouraged employees to do everything in their power to reach a new record quarter.
Next Wednesday we went to Tesla Burbank to pick up Model 3, which was ordered by Scott Buscemi, a videographer who sometimes collaborates with Electrek. Scott ordered a black Standard Range Plus with 18-inch Aero wheels on June 19 and received a delivery date exactly one week later.
When we got there in the late afternoon, the lot was full of vehicles waiting for deliveries:  Deliveries are by appointment, and when we got there, about three more people waited for their papers and three other people, who finished their papers to receive the delivery.
Scott had already completed most of the process online. so it only took a few minutes for the final paperwork.
Interestingly, one of Tesla's most experienced designers, David Imai, was responsible for the delivery process for Scott's delivery. It looks like everyone will contact Tesla to help deliveries by the end of the quarter.
After that we came to the delivery and inspection. It's made outside the showroom, where all the cars around the building are lined up:
At first, we could not figure out why the key did not work with the Scott Model 3.
There were so many cars delivered that Tesla was confused, and Scott presented the wrong black Standard Range Plus with 18-inch Aero wheels.
They quickly found the right car and after a quick inspection everything looked fine, except for a small scratch on the front fender.  It could not be repaired on-site, and they naturally want people to pick up the delivery immediately so the ringing is noted and repaired for free at an upcoming service appointment.
Scott later found out the earliest available date was July 9th.
We were there for about 45 minutes and during that time I saw about a dozen people accepting the delivery and things did not slow down.
It's nice to see Non-Retai l or staff helping out at the end of the quarter, which could help their colleagues reach their delivery goals and receive their rewards.
Tesla Burbank was about as busy as I expected, and I expect things to continue to increase over the weekend
I still believe that the target of 33,000 deliveries in North America in June is possible and I hope they achieve it because the retail and delivery employees have earned these bonuses after the events this year. Be tough, especially as the last day of the quarter happens to be a Sunday and some states restrictions on the delivery of cars on the Have Sunday.
It's going to be a crazy weekend. If you are going to a Tesla store this weekend, please send me an update.
