That would translate to about 3,500 Model 3s per week, up quite a bit from the weekly production rate of 2,270 it hit in the last week of April.

One of Tesla's chief supporters on Wall Street has taken a more bearish approach to the electric automaker as the company embarks on a major managerial shakeup following poor production numbers.

According to local media, police said the woman at the wheel of the vehicle claimed it was in a self-driving mode and that her attention was on her phone. It is not known whether the autopilot function of the Tesla auto was activated at the time.

Morgan Stanley automotive analyst Adam Jonas, one of Teslas biggest bulls, has dropped his price target for Elon Musk's electric vehicle company from $376 to $291, below the company's trading price at the close of market on Monday.

"What's actually incredible about this accident is that a Model S hit a fire truck at 60 miles per hour and the driver only broke an ankle", Musk tweeted.

Reuters recalls that Elon Musk mentioned reorganization during Tesla's Q1 earnings conference call, but at that time, Musk did not go into details.

But unlike Autopilot, Super Cruise uses sensors to track where the driver's eyes are looking, and will give audible and visual alerts if it detects that the driver isn't paying attention.

Autopilot, a form of advanced cruise control, handles some driving tasks and warns those behind the wheel they are always responsible for the vehicle's safe operation, Tesla has said.

Tesla said it was working to gather all the facts about the Swiss case and was fully cooperating with the local authorities. "Approx 4X better than avg", Musk said.

NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway told the Deseret News, as of Monday evening, the agency had not opened an investigation into the Friday crash in South Jordan but would make an announcement if that status changed.

Tesla can not seem to stay out of the news lately. If you are driving a Tesla equipped with Autopilot hardware, you are 3.7 times less likely to be involved in a fatal accident.

The National Transportation Safety Board said it was not investigating the Utah crash. Jalopnik asserts that witnesses of the crash didn't see the Model S brake before the impact.
