During Tesla’s recent third quarter, the company only managed to produce 260 Model 3s, a figure far below expectations. While it was long assumed Tesla would need some time to ramp up production, no one really envisioned Model 3 production being as slow as it’s been. As to why Model 3 production has been curiously low, Tesla attributed the blame to “production bottlenecks” without delving into further detail.
Looking to fill in some of the gaps, the The Wall Street Journal last week claimed that the “production bottlenecks” Tesla alluded to were the result of problems with the company’s advanced robots. Consequently, the Journal added that Tesla factory workers were busy “piecing together parts of the cars in a special area while the company feverishly worked to finish the machinery designed to produce Model 3’s at a rate of thousands a week.”
