Tesla Model 3 is the most awaited car of all times, and the thousands of pre-orders in just the first week of the opening are a clear proof of that. The car went instantly popular, but Tesla probably did not realize the production limitations of all those orders. The Tesla Model 3 cars began manufacturing about three months ago, and the company managed to deliver the first 30 orders at the promised deadline.
According to Musk, Tesla has been going through “production hell” all this time, but that is not meant to bring the company down by any means. When people began to drop criticism of the company, Elon Musk silenced the haters with a video of the production line.
The CEO posted a video on Sunday that captures the slowed-down process of automated robots while working on a Model 3 body.
In the last period, Tesla reported that it had managed to produce only 260 units, way below its target of 1500 cars. According to the Wall Street Journal, the production delays were caused due to the lack of automation as major work was being done by manual labor. The video posted by Musk is the answer to both of these accusations.
According to Tesla spokesperson,
“We are still in the beginning of our production ramp, but every Model 3 is being built on the Model 3 production line, which is fully installed, powered on, producing vehicles, and increasing in automation every day.”
The Tesla Model 3’s production deadline is not the first event where Musk made an unrealistic promise. Just like magic, he even managed to deliver it. One can’t deny that tiring work that goes behind meeting those deadlines, but the company gets it done anyway.
