Elon Musk restructures Tesla to iron out Model 3 production bottlenecks

15 Mai 2018

Following a February Model 3 production line pause, which the company described as "common in production ramps like this", according to Bloomberg, Model 3 line workers were asked to work longer hours, with extra pay, to make up for the lost time.

At least two more crashes involving Tesla vehicles are being investigated by the NTSB and the National Highway Traffic safety Administration. Sumwalt said. "While we understand the demand for information that parties face during an NTSB investigation, uncoordinated releases of incomplete information do not further transportation safety or serve the public interest".
