Tesla might have broken its own records, producing 72,531 Model 3 cars in the quarter that concluded on June 30, 2019. But workers say in the hurry to increase up Model 3 manufacturing, they were obliged to work in unsafe, difficult conditions and cut corners. A few employees who work in open-air GA4 production of Tesla claimed to the media that they employed electrical tape to swiftly repair cracks on housings and plastic brackets. They also operated through extreme cold, heat, and wild-fire smoke.
A spokesperson of Tesla claimed to the media that the worker’s reports do not reflect our production practices and are misleading and show what it is like to operate at Tesla. The spokesperson claimed that many of the shortcuts the workers claim to have employed are not accepted and that many components employed in the Model 3 come with electrical tape from the suppliers on them. As for the operating conditions, the spokesperson claimed, “We operate hard to make a work surrounding that is as secure, fun, and fair as possible, and it is very essential to us that workers look forward every day to coming to work.”
On a related note, Tesla is still cheating with costs. And whether or not you love it relies on which electric vehicle you were searching for. The firm has once again dropped the Standard Range variants of the Model X and Model S, increasing the respective base costs to $84,990 and $79,990. The cars are now that much more out to get for some users, although users splurging on the Performance versions do receive the Ludicrous alternative at no additional cost—that’s a savings of $20,000. And Model 3 users will, for the most of the time, be smiling. The price for Standard Range Plus of the Model 3 has decreased by almost $500–38,990 in the US.
