(Reuters) – Tesla Inc Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said on Monday production of the $35,000 (£26,565) version of the electric carmaker’s Model 3 will start this month, but would not reach volume production until mid-year.

“Gap in understanding is that $35k Model 3 production starts this month, but will not reach volume production until mid year. Extremely difficult to predict middle part of manufacturing S-curve,” Musk replied to a tweet

Tesla offered for the first time a $35,000 version of its Model 3 last week and said its global sales would now be online-only, steps designed to increase demand and cut overhead costs for the company.
