Tesla founder Elon Musk will step down from his role as the firm's chairman and pay a $20 million (around Rs 146 crore) penalty as part of a settlement with the American Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over a charge of securities fraud.

Musk has said the company has moved from "production hell" with the Model 3 to "delivery hell".

In order to "achieve a victory beyond all expectations, Tesla must go "all out" on production on Sunday which marks the end of the quarter, Musk said". These 7 tweets about taking the company private have proven to be pricey enough and Tesla and Musk combined have to pay a hefty price of $40 million to settle the case.

Tesla stock rose 17.3 per cent to $310.70 after a 14 per cent plunge on Friday, which left it slightly higher than it finished Thursday.

Musk posted a series of tweets in August that detailed his now-defunct plans to take the electric carmaker private.

In the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, more than 75 people crammed into Tesla's service center and another 50 or so waited outside.

That action led to a backlash in a number of states, which have sought to pass their own rules of the road for internet service. Barbara van Schewick, a law professor at Stanford University and an advocate for tougher net neutrality policies, agreed.

The release did not directly address the lots full of Tesla cars that have reportedly filled up around the country, from the San Francisco Bay Area to Los Angeles, Seattle, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Dallas, and Chicago, as The New York Times reported Tuesday.

It wasn't immediately clear how many outlets across the US were doing record volume.

"This weekend is the pivot point", he said, describing it as watershed moment not just for the company but for the shift away from the internal combustion engine.

You see, even with offerings like the Toyota Prius and Nissan Leaf, the idea of a market-friendly electric vehicle that's both stylish and fun-to-drive has never been more mainstream than it has with Musk and Tesla leading the charge. In the last week of the quarter, we produced over 5,300 Model 3 vehicles, nearly all of which were dual motor, meaning that we achieved a production rate of more than 10,000 drive units per week. "The resolution is meant to prevent further market disruption and harm to Tesla's shareholders", said Steven Peikin, co-director of the SEC's Enforcement Division.

"A $20 million fine is very small, (.) allows him to stay there and also introduces some healthy governance measures". Musk settled with the regulators on Saturday.
