Tesla CEO shares shots of robots working on Model 3 production line

Source:TED

Over the weekend he posted a video showing the Model 3 production line apparently at work, and has insisted that the company is still production curve will steepen in due course. Within this pact, however, is shared understanding: Yes, we aren't going to make our goals - but we also aren't going to lose focus on the big picture, which isn't to sell more cars, but to save the planet. Tesla shares slipped about 0.5% in late trading, after closing with a 0.4% increase at $356.88. By the numbers, the company is well behind its objective, citing "bottlenecks".

Has Tesla, the revolutionary phenomenon of the auto industry, missed its "iPhone moment", the once-in-a-life-time opportunity to leverage its unique position in the electric car revolution before traditional car-makers catch up?

Tesla Inc.is delaying the unveiling of its electric semi truck, . In 2011, when a tsunami and a nuclear-plant disaster hit Japan, the automotive supply chain was massively disrupted for Toyota and Honda, leading to manufacturing slowdowns worldwide.

Tesla told Jalopnik that its production lines feature both "manual and automated processes". And because they're based on an image already teased by Elon Musk himself, there's a very good chance the finished Tesla lorry will look just as good.

Harvey Weinstein fired from his company after sexual misconduct allegations
But Weinstein and his lawyers have criticized the New York Times' report in statements and interviews. A spokeswoman for the executive did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Instagram video showed the Model 3 body line slowed to 1/10th speed.

Welded bodies arrive on the line from a separate location and are then completed: wheels, drivetrains, dashboards, and various other systems are installed, almost entirely by hand, and the pace isn't torrid. And with vehicles starting out at $200,000 apiece, this bespoke approach adds value. Also important was new technology that enabled a single storage system to provide a wide range of services, such as charging vehicles and powering homes. For example, in August we learned that Tesla wants the truck to be able to form a "platoon" on highways, where only the lead truck would require a driver.

And patient they are. "Merely propping up aging infrastructure will not be effective", says Simon Johnson, former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, who has studied Puerto Rico's debt situation, in an opinion piece for Project Syndicate. To build an EV they can get to market quickly, build easily, and price below $40,000, other manufacturers are adapting the existing gas-car platform.
