Tesla CEO Elon Musk offers rare look inside Model 3 factory

  • Published on Apr 13, 2018
  • The pioneering electric car company Tesla has suffered a series of very public challenges since the beginning of this year. Its high-profile CEO Elon Musk called this a period of "production hell." Most of the troubles revolve around the company's Model 3 sedan, its first mid-priced, mass-produced electric car. Musk takes "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King on a tour of his Silicon Valley factory. It is the first time network cameras were allowed inside the production line.

    Not sure how anyone could dislike Elon Musk, he's incredibly humble in the way he speaks and he works "like a dog".

    "It should be pretty obvious that I am not going to joke about bankruptcy if I think it is remotely real." This is how me and other nerds think. Being socially incompetent and personally creative and rebellious, that is a tactical mistake and will cause in being excused away by the society.

    The American dream: Elon has incredible intellect and ambition. He's unstoppable.
    If you can afford it, the American thing to do is BUY TESLA STOCK NOW and hold it.
    It's about a better cleaner world using renewable sustainable energies.

    The reason Electric cars have not been mainstream is that it is very expensive to manufacture and the electricity still needs to come from somewhere and it is difficult to store. there is no free lunch. I saw this coming years ago. . the reason Elon Musk was somewhat successful is that he had billions of dollars to play with from the sale of Pay pay and getting investors hooked on an Idea. The only thing keeping electric cars alive are the government subsades. don't forget that 3 drops of gasoline are equivalent to a stick of dynamite!! that is very hard to beat in terms of energy storage. I know gas is dirty, but it packs more energy in one gallon than any other thing available right now.

  • Russell Lee

    If Mr. Musk was trying to change the world he would sell his cars for $1,000 a piece knowing it would generate tens of millions of sales and put the company in the black. Also extending the range with more battery power, and offering a charging ability using the home's 110 volt outlet. Altogether this would better the lives of the people of the world. Instead this car is a baited hook requiring a $100,000 down payment to be able to 'rent' it for life in having to 'pay' to recharge it at Tesla-only stations. This car is rental bait for those blind enough to fall for it. Elon the fake.

    As a specialist who can analyze, estimate, forecast, predict etc, my problem with this company is that it hires/fires hundred from sales team, periodically. For me this is an indication of something not right: maybe a way to hide the true income and expenses?

  • sam guapo

    Today is 7/6/2018 People are questioning his ability to maintain a 5000cars/week production. During this videos filming, people were questioning Tesla's ability to produce 2000cars/week. I guess they aren't questioning 2000 now. I guess when he hits 8000cars/week people will question him being unable to make 100,000cars/week. People.
