It is not new for Tesla to push harder for production and delivery during the end-of-quarter. This quarter too appears to be the same.

As Tesla owns its entire distribution network unlike the other auto manufacturers, the carmaker doesn't sell its vehicles to third-party dealers. This is a reason Tesla is known to face end-of-quarter delivery issues, as it tries to deliver as many EVs from its plants to the customers in order to reduce the inventory stockpile.

In the email sent to Tesla employees, Elon Musk has said that the company is executing well as per its plans, but the next remaining days of this quarter are super important for production and delivery. "Overall, we are executing well, but the next 12 days are super important for production and delivery this quarter. Please go all out!" as the mail reads.

Tesla CEO didn't reveal the actual production and delivery targets though. This is probably in an attempt to avoid leaks. The electric car manufacturer usually doesn't share the actual production and delivery targets.

The automaker will reveal the production and delivery numbers for the Q2 of 2021 in the first week of July.
