Tesla Fremont GA4.5 Nears Completion, Hints Next Level Model Y Production Rate In Q3https://t.co/5JPCDNiiE7— Tesmanian.com (@Tesmanian_com) July 12, 2020
And now, Tesla has begun installing a casting machine for the Model Y. A Tesla giant casting machine with a paint shop was spotted at Fremont factory, California, a few days ago.
Tesla strives to produce high-quality vehicles as efficiently as possible. One area of focus for the company is increasing efficiency in the car body manufacturing process.
The EV maker will employ its new aluminum casting process—for the first time ever for any vehicle—on Model Y. The automaker plans to wean from casting 70 parts to four parts, and then ultimately to just one.
@TroyTeslike's observations based on the VIN registrations of Model Y owners show that on August 2nd, production of this model dropped to 0. This is because Tesla has upgraded the GA4 assembly line. Now, production has resumed and soon we will see many Model Ys rolling out of the Fremont factory.
This chart shows the number of Model Y VINs reported in my survey here https://t.co/Ftek1k2Qfg. For example, 5 buyers said they received their VIN on 30 Jul but it dropped to zero on 2 Aug because Tesla was upgrading the GA4 assembly line. It looks like production has now resumed pic.twitter.com/VSYpX7uhpz— Troy Teslike (@TroyTeslike) August 7, 2020
