The company said the move was a planned production pause of up to five days. It is the second time since February that Tesla has halted its production line for the Model 3 at its Fremont, California plant, reports the Guardian.
"These periods are used to improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks in order to increase production rates," a company spokesperson said.
Tesla suspended production of its Model 3 for four days in February in what the company said was planned work to improve automation and address bottlenecks.
It warned of possibly more periods of downtime in the coming months.
Car manufacturers typically stop or slow production of new models when ironing out problems with production.
The electric car firm has repeatedly missed targets and was now trying to reach a production volume of 2,500 vehicles per week.
Musk recently said Tesla was managing to make 2,000 Model 3s a week, but failed to assuage doubts about the company reaching its 5,000-a-week target in three months time.
Musk tweeted on April 13 that Tesla would be profitable and the cash flow positive in the third and fourth quarters, with no need to raise money.
