A Recent financial report, Tesla revealed that the company continues to incur losses and unable to cope with the delivery schedule of car Model 3. At a meeting with investors, Elon Musk, the head of the company, noted that part of the problem can be solved by increasing productivity. For this, according to the Mask, you need to launch an unmanned Semi truck Tesla, which will deliver the finished batteries to the car Assembly shop. Then you need to create a tunnel that will allow the automated delivery of components from shop to shop.
Battery Factory Gigafactory 1 located in Nevada at a distance of about 400 kilometers from the Assembly factory, which is located in California. To haul cargo from one factory to another is very costly, so Musk proposed building between the two factories line Hyperloop, especially that founded by Musk The Boring Company just specializiruetsya in the construction of tunnels, but so far the company have not given permission for the construction of tunnels between the States. For this reason, Musk has offered to put between Nevada and California unmanned Semi trucks Tesla — the reserve will allow you to deliver batteries to the Assembly line and back. Tesla has already requested permission from the authorities of both States for testing trucks in autopilot mode.
But the tunnel company will not refuse. It has been assumed that the tunnel will also be able to partially solve the problem of transportation of freight — Assembly workshop and factory, where you make chairs, located at a distance of about two kilometers from each other. A tunnel dug under the building and directly connecting the two chambers could significantly speed up the Assembly.
According to the head of Tesla, this optimization of the delivery components can significantly improve the situation, so that the pipeline will annually go up to 600 sedan Model 3, and about a hundred Model S and X.
