Musk said that Tesla learned a lot of lessons from the previous models and they are going to apply what they learned in the Model 3.
The electric vehicle maker has cautioned that its rollout of the Model 3, its first attempt at a mass-market auto, would face challenges.
The company delivered 22,026 cars this past quarter, and Musk predicted the company would be producing 5,000 cars per week by the end of 2017 and 10,000 vehicles per week toward the end of 2018, translating into 500,00 cars per year.
Last quarter, Tesla promised that, despite its long history of delays, production of the Model 3 sedan would start on time in July.
Tesla also claims that orders for both the Model S and X have been up, as well. Consensus estimates now stand at adjusted losses of $1.88 per share on $2.5 billion in sales.
Musk said: "Upon the council of my executive team to reel me back from the cliffs of insanity, the Model Y will, in fact, be using substantial carryover from Model 3 in order to bring it to market faster".
The German company's items are already in Tesla's Model S cars, the world's top-selling electric auto, but the Model 3 - priced at $35,000 in the United States - has the possibility to substantially outsell the $60,000 Model S.

The entrepreneur's comments came after Tesla announced its second-quarter financial results, revealing revenue of $2.8bn (£2.1bn) and a loss of $2.04 per share. And despite the launch of the more affordable Model 3, Tesla has reported that its luxury cars, the Model S and Model X are also increasingly in demand from consumers.
Tesla produced 25,708 vehicles in the second quarter, up 40% from the same period a year earlier.
