Tesla increased production of Model 3, released under the awningJuly 4, 2018
The ideological inspiration Tesla Elon Musk boasted that he kept his word and increased the production of their cars. More than seven thousand cars have been manufactured from his company’s conveyor belt. And this is up to five thousand “triples” in seven days by the end of the first half of the year.
How did he do it? The production of cars under the huge awning began to boil, where an assembly conveyor built for the 3rd car was located. The tent was set up in two weeks, thanks to which the production boiled in June this year.
The length of the building is 300 meters, its area is 12.8 thousand square meters. The construction of the “tent” was the company Sprung, which thirty years ago installed similar tents for space program Space Shuttle. Inside the fire extinguishing system, but there is no air conditioning.
However, experts are wondering what kind of quality cars will have. After all, they are collected by people, not by automatic machines. The manufacturer did not manage to solve this issue and automate the production in the “tent”.
Similar tents are usually installed during military operations for the production of special equipment, and it is also not famous for the quality of assembly, since it is designed to work for a short period of time.
In turn, Elon Musk commented that production under the awning goes as expected, without any criticism. Here is the assembly of all-wheel drive Model 3. Now Mask is not at all sure of the need for stationary factory buildings.
Tesla asked Model 3 customers to deposit one more “confirming” deposit: an additional $ 2,500 in excess of one thousand, which they gave during the application process. The number of orders for the Model 3 hardly exceeds 450 thousand.
