Elon Musk Now Says Tesla Workers Must Sleep On The Assembly Line To Develop The New EV

Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s ambitious plan to produce an affordable electric vehicle is causing a stir, as reports suggest that workers may need to practically live at the company’s Texas manufacturing plant. This move, aimed at accelerating production, raises questions about work-life balance and quality control.

During an earnings call, Musk emphasized the challenging production ramp for the upcoming electric vehicle, codenamed “Redwood,” hinting at workers sleeping on the production line. This practice isn’t new for Tesla, as Musk himself has previously boasted about sleeping at the factory during intense production phases.

While Musk’s dedication to production speed is evident, concerns linger regarding the impact on quality control. Tesla vehicles have faced criticism for various issues, including suspension failures and exterior finish problems like misaligned doors on the Cybertruck and Model Y.

The correlation between work-life balance and quality control remains uncertain, but instances like staff sleeping at former Twitter headquarters (now owned by Musk) and subsequent increased bugs suggest potential implications. Moreover, Musk’s long-standing promise of a $25,000 Tesla vehicle raises skepticism about whether affordability will truly reach the mass market.
