Is Tesla Motors the future of both cars and automotive production? Quite possibly.
There's no question the Tesla Model S is an impressive thing. It's also unlike any other car on the market today (don't even mention the Nissan Leaf). Aside from the fact the Model S is an EV, it just happens to be manufactured in a facility that's just beyond anything we've ever seen in terms of mass production. This new video from Wired goes behind the scenes at Tesla's manufacturing facility, located in Fremont, California. Amazingly, it takes just five days for a Model S to go from raw materials to a completed car.
There are a total of 160 robots and 3,000 employees working to make the Model S a reality, and the whole operation is really quite something. Still not convinced? Check out the video and see for yourself.
