Musk also laid out plans for the Model Y, supposedly set for a March 2019 unveiling, with production starting in the first half of 2020. While the Model S and Model X are known for price tags starting between $70,000 and $100,000, Tesla has set a $35,000 base target price for the Model 3, with a shorter-range battery, to appeal to a more mid-range, non-luxury-market vehicle customer.

Meanwhile, Musk said the beleaguered Model 3 affordable sedan should be hitting a production rate of 5,000 cars per week by the end of June.

A consumer data research organization recently suggested that customers are increasingly requesting refunds on their Tesla orders.

Tesla has been struggling to ramp up production of its new Model 3 sedan, which is crucial to the company's long-term profitability.

Tesla on Tuesday revealed to shareholders that it was working with officials in China to build electric cars and battery packs in Shanghai. "We're not ideal but we pour our heart and soul into it and we really care".

The company has been engaging in so-called "burst builds", temporary periods of full-scale production.

He came under fire last month for refusing to answer questions from analysts about the company's finances, saying "boring bonehead questions are not cool".

Tesla has been burning through so much cash - more than $1 billion during the first three months of this year alone - that investors have been worrying it will have to sell more stock or add to its already hefty debt load to raise enough money to survive. If Musk is correct, the prediction will translate into Tesla bringing in more cash than it's spending in both the third and fourth quarters.

Investors are bracing for a tough show at Tesla Inc.'s annual meeting later Tuesday, with bearish bets in the electric auto company hovering near a two-year high, and shares sliding about 17 percent since the last meeting a year ago.

Arguing that the sprawling company has become hard to oversee, one investor proposed splitting the chairman and chief executive jobs, both of which Musk holds.

The proposal to remove Musk from his role as chairman of Tesla's board was introduced by Jing Zhao, a shareholder who has questioned whether Musk - who leads several other companies in addition to Tesla - is spread too thin.

The delayed rollout of the Model 3 - which has a waiting list hundreds of thousands of buyers long - has been the source of extreme frustration inside the company and out, generating concerns among some analysts that Musk's manufacturing pronouncements can't be trusted. Despite concerns that each member would be unable to help Musk focus on the many challenges Tesla faces, stockholders voted to maintain their positions on the board.
