Elon Musk: Tesla was month away from bankruptcy.

Tesla has grown to be the foremost important and (by some measures) the foremost rewarding automaker inside the world, But a little while ago it nearly toppled straight into bankruptcy.

CEO Elon Musk tweeted the week how the company was within four weeks of filing for bankruptcy when it was having difficulties to bring its best selling car, the Model 3 sedan, to promote.

“Closest we got was regarding a month,” he said when asked through Twitter how close up Tesla received to bankruptcy. “The Model three ramp was ache and stress and anxiety extreme for a long period – as a result of mid 2017 to mid 2019. Creation & strategic planning hell.”

Tesla was at a major cash crunch as losses mounted and this struggled to strike many output targets for the Model 3. But Musk hadn’t previously disclosed the organization was near to filing for bankruptcy — even though he did joke about a bankruptcy filing within its own tweet on April Fool’s Day found 2018.
