Elon Musk has posted a video on Instagram of the Model 3 on the production line. The robots arms work away mechanically welding the body together, but in an effort to highlight their efforts, the video has been slowed to 1/10th the real speed. While that makes the video broadly consumable, I know you want to see the production line (and robots) working at their full capacity, so I’ve sped up the clip 10x to reveal the Model 3 production line working at full speed. The clip only runs for 2 seconds, so its duplicated it 10 times.
Tesla is currently in ‘production hell’ with the Model 3 and on Saturday announced a delay to the Tesla Semi unveil event, now to be held on Nov 16. The company is diverting resources to fix Model 3 bottlenecks & increase battery production for Puerto Rico & other affected areas.
Musk has now posted a new video of the production line running at full speed, pressing the body panels of the Tesla Model 3.
Here’s the original post and video from Musk.
