The new assembly line for the Tesla Model 3 at the factory in Fremont (California, USA) caused an ambiguous attitude among the fans of the brand. It was placed inside the building, which is a huge tent, what is very unusual for the industry.
Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has commented on the project, saying that the new line is “better” and costs several times less than any other assembly line of the company. He asked employees for a current push to increase the production of the Model 3 to 5,000 units a week, including on the mentioned line at the Fremont facility.
People call this project a “tent”, but in fact this structure of the building is named Sprung and is stronger than a building used on permanent basis. In his Twitter, the head of Tesla praised the team’s work on the new assembly line and presumptuously remarked that it was better than the general conveyor line inside the factory.
Tesla applied for a temporary permission to build a “tent”, but now, apparently, its CEO believes it can work permanently, as is “more comfortable” and offers a “great view of the mountains.”
Last weekend Mr. Musk released a picture of the Tesla Model 3 Dual Motor Performance, the first to roll off the new assembly line. Tesla’s boss seems more confident than ever about Tesla achieving its production goals for the Model 3.
