Tesla Model 3 Month Is Here.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said on multiple occasions in the past year that the target was to start production of the Tesla Model 3 in July. When he first said this (on one of Tesla’s quarterly conference calls), he was very hesitant to say it because he indicated it was a strict target for suppliers specifically because they knew not all suppliers would end up meeting the target. To try to really meet the target (or not go far beyond it), Tesla had penalties in place for suppliers who missed the deadline. Furthermore, as a backup, Tesla said it was preparing production capacity for any critical parts of the car itself in case its suppliers fell through.
Also worth noting is that Tesla adopted a “design for manufacturing” approach for the Model 3 — an approach that meant every element of the Model 3’s design had to be easy to manufacture, to put it simply. The point again: Don’t miss the production targets.
Even with all of that laid out many months ago, a ton of people figured Tesla would be way behind schedule manufacturing the Model 3, that manufacturing wouldn’t really start till 2018 even, or 2020. Yada yada yada.
Elon warned people last year to not base Model 3 production/delay estimates on the Model S or Model X scenarios. That would lead to faulty conclusions based on bad analogies. Obviously, Tesla learned several lessons, including some ginormous ones, from their manufacturing experience over the last decade.
Well, all of the cautious and thoughtful approaches Tesla implemented for Model 3 production seem to have paid off. As we wrote a couple of weeks ago, Model 3 production actually seems to be ahead of schedule. It may have already started. We don’t have a date for the final unveiling event, where the first production Model 3s will be delivered, but Elon noted that it would be in July … this month.

Model 3 combines real world range, performance, safety and spaciousness into a premium sedan that only Tesla can build. Our most affordable car yet, Model 3 achieves 345 km of range per charge while starting at only 35,000 USD before incentives. Model 3 is designed to attain the highest safety ratings in every category.
Range per charge - 345 km
Zero to 100 km/h - under 6 seconds
Elon Musk said that all Tesla Model 3s will have Autopilot hardware as standard – and all the safety features that come with it. Sure, you won’t get the full autonomous Autopilot I tried the other day, but you will get things such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB), lane keeping and automatic preventative steering (Autosteer) – which is seriously impressive at this price. And because the Model 3 comes with all the sensors and lasers you need for Autopilot as standard, you can always get the matching software at a later date. It’ll probably cost you around £2,600, but having the option to upgrade your entry-level Tesla is a real bonus.
Well it really locks good, the most imortant think its the infrastructure for it!

Tesla is serious about its new mobile service effort – here’s a glimpse at its capacity.
Last month, Tesla announced a new plan to triple its service capacity. At the core of the plan is a major expansion of its mobile service fleet with 350 new service vans (they currently have over 130 vans on the road).
Tesla explains its new focus on mobile service due to the realization that 90% of the issues on its vehicles can be diagnosed remotely and then fixed by a technician coming to the owner’s home or work without interfering with their schedule.
But what kind of job can they really do from those mobile service vans?
We have seen examples of Tesla’s mobile technicians changing tires and aligning wheels, but as it turns out, they can do much more than that.
A good example is Model S owner Dominic Scaffidi who recently had his entire front seats replaced at home by Tesla’s mobile service.
When he took delivery of his Model S 5 months ago, Scaffidi saw wrinkles in the perforated and cooled leather seats. Tesla’s service team first tried to repair them, but when that failed, they ended up having to make new ones.
The problem is that those seats had just been discontinued. Tesla streamlined its interior options earlier this year.
While the wait for the new seats was long, Scaffidi didn’t have to lose any time to schedule a service appointment to have them installed since to his surprise, they came to his house yesterday to change the seats in less than two hours.
It gives us an idea of the range of service jobs that mobile technicians can do without having to bring the car to Tesla’s service centers, which are often busy in Tesla’s biggest markets.
When we reported on the mobile service back in March, some had doubts that Tesla would be able (or even try to) scale the initiative with the upcoming Model 3, but the latest service expansion plan makes it look like a priority.
There’s a lot of electronics invovled with the seats of a Model S, of course, in order to operate the seats’ convenience and power features, but also safety systems to manage the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
Therefore, it’s not exactly a simple job, which makes it somewhat impressive that Tesla can do it at the customer’s house or workplace.
At the other end of the spectrum, Tesla sent a technician to my house a few months ago to change a simple door latch in my Model S. It saved me a two-hour drive to the nearest service center.
