  1. Found a good read on how Tesla is improving their Tesla 3 battery pack with the use of High Strength Steel in the car to protect a less protected battery pack. Interesting is the floppy battery cover they remove and they reduced weight by building the AC and DC to DC converters into the battery pack making it more efficient and less complex modules located around the auto. https://insideevs.com/what-makes-the-tesla-model-3-battery-pack-so-light/ https://insideevs.com/watch-as-tesla-model-3-battery-is-removed-and-disassembled/ Also interesting read on how Panasonic / Tesla are reducing their Cobalt needs heading towards zero cobalt. https://insideevs.com/tesla-panasonic-quietly-outmaneuvers-all-lithium-battery-manufacturers/
  2. Hits Keep Coming for Tesla 3 Edmunds two years ago put down a $1,000 deposit for the Tesla 3 and bought a $56,000 configured Tesla 3. This car to date has only been able to rack up 5,257 miles in 4 months due a very long list of problems and multiple service calls for what many call cutting edge EV. The goal was to rack up at least 1,700 miles a month in the Tesla 3, so 6,800 miles in 4 months yet the EV is sidelined again awaiting a service call. Edmunds has confirmed that the Tesla 3 met and at other times surpassed the EPA rating for the car. The list of issues is so long that they have a google doc to just keep track of them all. Most common issues is the annoying and repeated uncontrollable increase in stereo volume even when your not in the car to maximum sound. This is just a small issue compared to the keycards not being recognized, touch screen freeze up and interior parts falling off the car such as the vanity mirror, which has been fixed and yet still seems to fall off when you open it. As the story continues, after the last service call where numerous issues were fixed, they then left to go on a drive and had the auto lock them out of being able to shift into drive or reverse until the auto rebooted and powered up. This along with a message that the car is in limited regenerative braking mode and the message that the car cannot maintain vehicle power and may stop or shutdown. There are a few highlights in regards to storage space and speed, but the pictures are funny. Currently this long term drive test auto is leaving anything but a positive experience for Edmunds.

  3. Tesla Model 3 Tear Down! Sandy Munro of Munro & Associates is an engineer who specializes in digging into the details of products. He especially is focused on EVs to make sure they are safe, well built and more. The video's below are very interesting to watch, especially the Teardown one where he clearly says some parts are garbage, some are competitive parts and some are worthy of Government required quality built for long life. The guy seems to know his stuff and it is worth time if you are interested in the nuts and bolts of how a Tesla 3 is built to watch.

  4. Tesla Model 3 Shut Down for a Week! Seems Buzzfeed website just released the news that the Tesla 3 will have a week delay just as it had it's first week of 2,500 production built model 3 done. This is according to the CEO to make adjustments in the software of the automation robots to allow for production to increase to hit their stated 5,000 per week goal. Seems more robots was not better than more humans in building the auto's. The story goes on to say workers will have to use a week of PTO or go unpaid as the line is updated. According to the Story, Musk posted on April 1st that the company had gone out of business and he was wandering Palo Alto drinking Teslaquilla. 😊 Seems that the lackluster quality of the Model 3, production slowness, investigations into accidents all have led to this shutdown to tweak the manufacturing process. This makes one think about Musk's original comments when he said they did not need an Alpha or Beta test of the production line to begin building and selling Model 3's. OOPS, Guess that did not work out like planned!
  5. Tesla Model Y Nov 2019 According to a story on Autoblog which talked off the record to auto suppliers, Tesla has asked for quoting on supplying parts for the Tesla Y which will go into production Nov 2019 according to the RFI. Tesla Y story Seems Musk thinks he can produce 500,000 auto's off the building in Fremont California which is currently producing the Tesla S, X and 3. Now he wants to add the Y to this when they struggle to build the 3 in sufficient quantities. This makes me wonder how much business will be stolen by SF motors and their EV CUVs that will be built at an existing Hummer assembly plant they acquired and are currently renovating to build the SF5 & SF7? If SF Motors can get pre-production versions started this summer with production in the 4th quarter of this year for auto's to be on sale in Spring 2019, this could really pinch Tesla and their attempt to raise $2 billion in additional cash as they stated to build the Tesla Y.
  6. Tesla cuts Tesla 3 parts delivery 40% starting in December 2017. According to a story that has broke on another site, it would appear that instead of taking delivery of enough parts per week to build 5,000 Tesla 3 cars per week in December, Tesla has cut that rate by 40% which indicates 3,000 per week by the end of Dec. This also has a ripple affect as it pushes out their delivery of reaching 10,000 Tesla 3 cars per week in the early part of 2018. They story goes on to say that Tesla will not start taking delivery of parts in 10,000 lot shipments till May or June at the earliest. This would indicate that If they are only building about 3,000 a week in the first half of 2018 ramping up to 10,000 by end of June for the rest of 2018, Tesla will deliver about 78,000 to 100,000 model 3 cars in the first 6 months of 2018 and then about 260,000 in the second half of 2018 hitting a possible 360,000 Tesla 3's for 2018 if no more issues happen and they resolve the battery building problems at the Giga Factory.

  7. Tesla delivers only 220 during the Quarter due to Bottlenecks Tesla says it is on track to deliver 100,000 S & X models by the end of the year and have Model 3 production up to 5000 units per month. Yet with that, they have also stated that due to bottlenecks on the assembly line, they are behind in building and delivering Tesla 3 to the public. I found the comment by another reader on the story of their quarterly report to be very spot on. To quote JSH who posted the following: "It seems that skipping basic steps in the tooling and manufacturing development process didn't pan out. It turns out that automotive manufacturers do know a bit more about making cars than a tech start up. This shocks no one except the fan-boys." Tesla Quarterly Report by Autoblog
