Tesla to halt Model S and Model X production for 18 days

Tesla intends to freeze production of two premium cars for 18 days

Despite the pandemic, Tesla is enjoying strong demand for its electric cars, but that doesn’t seem to extend to premium electric vehicles, writes Engadget.

CNBC has received an internal Tesla email that reveals the automaker will close production for the Model S and Model X between 24 December and 11 January, or 18 days. The company noted in a separate email that demand for its cars was “slightly higher” than anticipated during the quarter. However, there is clearly interest in the more affordable Model 3 and Model Y.
