Tesla Model 3 Delays More due to Battery Production Issues
  • Tesla employees say to expect more Model 3 delays, citing inexperienced workers, manual assembly of batteries

Procrastination in Production of the Tesla Model 3 due to Battery Problems

The Tesla Model 3 has had delays in its production schedule. The main reason behind this phenomenon is the battery issues that have cropped up recently. At least that is what the employees of the EV company have claimed is the real hard kernel of truth behind the lacuna in locomotion.

Hand assembly of parts has begun in earnest due to this interregnum in the production progress report. The manual assembly of batteries by employees has meant obvious delays in delivery.

Tesla seems to have gone the whole hog and borrowed some of the working staff from Panasonic to make its system work smoothly and efficiently.

A Tesla spokesperson told CNBC, "Until we reach full production, by definition some elements of the production process will be more manual. This is something Elon and [CTO] JB [Straubel] discussed extensively on our Q3 earnings call, and it has no impact on the quality or safety of the batteries we're producing."

Currently, manual operations are the norm and this means that a spanner has been thrown in the works. Elon Musk has been in talks with Jeffrey Brian Straubel regarding the cuts in earnings by Tesla.

However, thanks to quality control, the battery specificity remains the same and will not be affected. 220 Model 3s rolled off the assembly line in 2017.

Tesla’s prediction of 1500 was hardly met by the staff and administration. The question on everyone’s lips is whether the Model 3 will take Tesla to the next level or bring it down into the dumps.
