The Model 3 sedan by Tesla has passed all regulatory requirements for production two weeks in advance, according to a tweet by CEO Elon Musk on July 2nd.

Tesla shares closed lower for a fourth time in the past six trading sessions on Monday. The stock went down 2.49% ($8.99) to $352.62, after touching an intraday low at $351.50, or a price level not seen since June 12th ($350.62). In the week ended on July 2nd the shares of the electric car manufacturer lost 5.70% of their market value compared to a week ago, which marked the first drop in the past six weeks and also the steepest one since the week ended on December 4th 2016. However, the stock rose 6.04% in June, which has been the fourth consecutive monthly gain, but yet, the smallest one since April 2016.

“(Model 3) Production grows exponentially, so Aug should be 100 cars and Sept above 1,500”, Elon Musk said in a tweet, cited by Reuters. “Looks like we can reach 20,000 Model 3 cars per month in Dec.”

“Expecting to complete SN1 on Friday”, Musk also said in a reference to the first vehicle off assembly line, which will be available for sale.

In May, Tesla’s Chief Executive said that production of the company’s Model 3 was set to start in Fremont, California in July.
