Tesla Inc. says in the filing that to its knowledge, no government agency in an ongoing investigation has determined that it did anything wrong.

The Model 3 saloon, a more affordable auto than Tesla's previous models, is seen as crucial to the company's future and Mr Musk has described Tesla's push to make enough vehicles as "production hell".

In the latest SEC filing, the company said it has received subpoenas in connection with "certain projections that we made for Model 3 production rates during 2017 and other public statements relating to Model 3 production".

Elon Musk announced on Twitter that Tesla cars will soon be receiving a "Summon" feature through an over-the-air update.

The electric vehicle marker said: "Should the government decide to pursue an enforcement action, there exists the possibility of a material adverse impact on our business, results of operation, prospects, cash flows, and financial position".

"There are not many products you can buy that really make you happier", Elon told the publication.

"Saudi Arabia's an entire country", he said.
