A criminal investigation of Tesla by the States Justice Department is in the process, following to announcement made by Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla that he was thinking of privatizing the company.

We are into the final week of Q3 and Tesla is desperate to sell as many cars as possible, which is why a new delivery service has been introduced called Tesla Direct. Elon Musk said Tesla was experiencing ' delivery logistics hell' as it tries to deliver all of the new Model 3's rolling off the assembly line at its Fremont, California factory.

Earlier this month, Elon said Tesla's most pressing issues had moved from producing vehicles to delivering them, though he said delivery issues were easier to fix and would be solved soon.

While Model 3 has received all five stars in all segments of NHTSA's 5-Star Safety Ratings, Tesla and Musk have faced a lot of negative press and brand image since early August.

The automaker offers delivery to customers who don't live within 160 miles of a Tesla service center, but Electrek's report, which cites emails sent to customers in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, suggests Tesla has at least temporarily expanded its delivery service.

US President Donald Trump calls on nations to isolate 'corrupt' Iran
Trump told reporters later on Tuesday that the speech had "gotten very good reviews, certainly, and I think it went very well". The US President said that Tehran's leaders "do not respect their neighbours or borders or the sovereign rights of nations".

Also last week, Tesla said on the US Department of Justice was investigating Chief Executive Elon Musk's public statements in August that he was considering taking the electric carmaker private, the latest and biggest threat to Musk and his leadership of the electric vehicle maker. A customer took to Twitter asking Musk about the status of a Model 3 (AWD) order placed in June.

In the last quarter, Tesla said it produced 53,339 vehicles in the second quarter of the year.

Dozens of Tesla Model 3 sedans are reportedly being held in this Union Pacific freight depot in Salt Lake City. The company said it was co-operating and that the matter "should be quickly resolved".

Tesla began production of the Model 3, its first mass-market auto, in July 2017.
