Pausing Amid A Ramp-Up: It is unclear why Tesla wants to pause the lines. Separately, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in an email to employees on Friday that the company needs to ramp up production overall. The company is hurrying to meet its goal of making 500,000 vehicles by year's end.

The company needs to deliver over 181,000 vehicles this quarter to reach that goal, according to electric vehicle news site Electrek.
