This is what the Tesla factory shot from the drone looks like. There are a lot of robotsApril 9, 2020
Tesla demonstrated a spectacular video shot from a drone that clearly demonstrates how their modern factory in China functions. And the company has very few people, but there are a lot of robots.
Since Elon Musk is confident that in the near future Tesla plants will become completely autonomous, and some machines will create others, it is not surprising that the first thing that catches your eye when looking at the workshops from the inside is a huge number of robots that are involved in almost all stages of production . According to the head of the American corporation, production robotization increases the automation process, thereby speeding up the production of final products. However, the complete rejection of the human labor force is still far away and many of the technological processes are still performed by the employees of the enterprise.
Tesla was able to build and launch its factory in Shanghai in just a year. The company initially produced only the body of Model 3 sedans and was engaged in their final assembly. Many important components, including electric motors, still have to be imported. The first buyers of Model 3 sedans received their electric cars last December.
Due to the ongoing epidemic of coronavirus, the main factory of the corporation in Fremont is in quarantine. Due to the fact that China managed to cope with COVID-19, the Shanghai automobile plant resumed operations, thanks to which the weekly output of Model 3 grew to three thousand units, and the annual production capacity, according to the company, should be 150 thousand electric vehicles.
In addition to the assembly of sedans, in the near future the Chinese plant should begin production of Model Y crossovers.
