Electric car maker Tesla Inc. increased production of its Model 3 mass-market car in the first quarter but still fell far short of the numbers it promised last summer.Tesla says it made just under 35,000 vehicles total in the quarter including the Models S and X.The company said it delivered 29,980 vehicles during the quarter.The increased production comes after a succession of bad news for the company this year, which started with low production numbers in the fourth quarter when the company made only 2,425 Model 3s. In the Mountain View-area crash, Tesla said last weekend that the Model X SUV was operating on the company's semi-autonomous "Autopilot" system when it hit a freeway barrier.
