How The Tesla Model S Is Made – Video

“This Tesla factory is the future of the USA and the world,” say Tesla Motors’ VP of Manufacturing, Gilbert Passin of the company’s highly automated assembly plant. At present, the facility in Fremont Calif. takes about 3-5 days to turn out a completed Model S from raw materials of aluminum, electric driveline components, the interior, electronics, and so forth. In short, it’s an electrified factory building electric cars, and Wired put together this video of Tesla’s effort that includes 160 robots and 3,000 employees. Tesla projects sales of approximately 21,000 Model S sedans this year and its market position and stock price have caught the attention even of those who don’t normally pay as much attention. Passin says meanwhile Tesla is constantly working to refine its process efficiencies.
