The year 2018 is presenting some challenges for Tesla. In addition to dealing with a fatal accident involving its car, the company has left some investors impatient. They are unhappy with noncompliance with the production targets for Model 3, the company’s first mass-produced car.

According to Elon Musk, the biggest problem has been precisely the differential of Tesla: automation. To improve the situation, the entrepreneur took control of production and is replacing many of his robots with human beings. The company understood that over-reliance on automation was holding back work.

An example is the network of belts to carry parts. According to Musk, it was not working the best way and was discarded. With the help of human workers, the company expects to increase its weekly production of Model 3, which today is just over 2 thousand units.

At an investor meeting, Tesla kept its promise to manufacture 5,000 Model 3 per week by the end of the second quarter. The car is touted as the future of the company since it can make the revenue increase exponentially because of its more affordable price.

“I’m definitely under stress, so if I pretend I’m not under stress, I’ll be clear, I’m definitely under stress,” Musk said in an interview with CBS News.

The businessman said he was sleeping several nights at the Tesla factory. “When things get really intense, I do not have time to go home, shower and change, so I sleep here,” he said, pointing to a couch in a boardroom.
