I think the comments to the video are probably more revealing than the video itself.

Interesting what the old boys had to say in particular the knocking of the production methods but stating what a really good electric motor and battery design they had, I do wish these videos would stop playing all that annoying background music though.

I wonder how much longer the guys who designed the body work have job security.....?

Thanks for posting.
Too many parts in the car’s body. Interesting they say it is too stiff. Not obvious to me is why that is a prblem, as car manufactures always boast about their new model being more rigid as compared to the outgoing one.
When I look at a Tesla, I am alwsys taken back by how badly the body pannels fit, for such an expensive car.
It would be intersting to hear their observations on a trad... they won’t say, its too stiff! But they will say that it ( like Tesla ) has too many different types bonding methods.
I am critical about Tesla. However, I am the oposite to my Morgan, I am very forgiving on all its flaws, must be true love...
Cheers,
Bett

Tesla are now making 5000 model 3 cars a week, they have delivered 100,000 model 3 cars in 6 months, they have 300,000 more to make to fulfill orders. That is before the car even launches outside the USA.
If it ever gets to UK I for one would order one.
Hoping they’re available for September 2019 when we return our Toyota Auris hybrid, in the meantime happy to have the leaf.

Nor me. But then again, this whole video is more than a bit suspect in my view.

A Detroit-based news agency with large contracts to the big 3 Detroit manufacturers has done a review using a consultancy who is also dependent on contracts from the big 3 looking to slag off Tesla, and the best they can manage is that the body is a bit more expensive to manufacture than the big 3 could get away with.

Meanwhile Tesla is selling great cars that people want to buy and is gobbling up market share with a product that the big 3 cannot get anywhere near competing with.

Thanks for that..!
Really interesting.
It is easier to improve the body in white assembly than the electromechanical side. So Tesla has potential to improve production efficiency and reduce cost of assembly.

I shall be looking at a Model 3 when available in the UK.

BTW, I read a story, possibly "Fake News" that they wanted to call the model 3 the model E, but it seems Mercedes has that letter associated with cars.
The reason?
Their model line up would be Models S, E and X.......

The Securities and Exchange Commission are not happy with their production numbers information.
