Musk counters Model 3 'handbuilt' claims with a production line video

A GM exec slams Tesla's self-driving-car promises — says Elon Musk is 'full of crap'

In the same video, Sullins reiterated that the Model Y should arrive in the market sometime in late 2019 or in early 2020.

Initial Model 3 deliveries have been to Tesla employees, enabling the Palo Alto, California-based company to deal with a more forgiving audience in the event of any kinks with the first cars. During last week's call, Rosselló said Musk offered consoling words about the devastation on the island and to help with immediate relief efforts. After all, Tesla's value is in its potential for industry-disrupting innovation and growth, which is exactly what this project promises.

Barclays analysts' overall thesis on the company breaks investors down into three groups: The "true believers", who are along for the ride with Chief Executive Elon Musk no matter how bumpy it gets; the bears, who attack the company at every turn; and those in the middle. Using the proposed leaked photos as a reference point, the rendered Tesla looks sleek compared to other large semis. Musk also said Tesla would reschedule the unveiling of its semi-truck to Nov. 16 as it focuses on fixing production issues tied to Model 3 and increases battery production for Puerto Rico.

With production of the Model 3 now underway, the semi truck is Tesla's next major product tease. Production of these vehicles was designed around a run rate of about 100,000 a year, and Tesla will hit that mark most likely in 2017.

"You want to demonstrate to the world the capabilities and adaptability of the technology Tesla?".

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

The Model 3 delays could push that moment back, they say, giving traditional auto makers like General Motors Inc.

The microgrid took just one year to install and finish. Tesla produced roughly 85,000 vehicles in 2016 and plans to make half a million in 2018. And with vehicles starting out at $200,000 apiece, this bespoke approach adds value. It's been reported that Puerto Rico's infrastructure was in need of an upgrade before the onslaught of recent storms, so Tesla's innovative approaches and the timing of the situation might be the perfect mix. The report showed the company manufactured only 260 Model 3s in September, far short of its goal of 1,500 cars Musk predicted in July. "But now I have electricity, and they have no" - he said to the Agency.
