Tesla said in a second quarter earnings update on Wednesday that it has repeatedly produced 5,000 Model 3 electric sedans in a week. Previously, the company said it would have to hit a weekly run-rate of 5,000 Model 3’s to become profitable, long-term.

Tesla made 53,339 vehicles in the second quarter, delivering 22,319 Model S and Model X vehicles and 18,449 Model 3 vehicles to customers, totaling 40,768 deliveries, according to the earnings release.

Tesla said it aims to increase its weekly run-rate for Model 3s to 6,000 by late August while ironing out issues in its factories “selectively” to address bottlenecks, rather than building any additional production lines.
