    OMG! This is excellent news and it helps me a lot with my recent 'stress' around the quoted cargo space... ;)

    Man, do I love this :
    'According to our source, the base Model 3, as of now, will start at 60kWh. This capacity comes in higher than what we original expected and should deliver more range than Tesla had originally announced.'

    Can't wait to hear by how much and feeling good to have kept the faith... :)

    Normally, my plan is to stick to the 60 kWh, unless, after getting AP2 software and AWD, I still have some budget left for the larger battery... :rainbow:
    I need an alignment of stars to enable this miracle, forex being one star and the other the continuation of the French incentives... :rocket:

    By the way, just like the 215+ miles, maybe they really meant 14+ ft³ for cargo space...?! :D

    "Capacitized" really Tesla? Really?! Sized? Scaled? Designed? Able? Capable (as used in a paragraph below)?

    Is this early enough to be available at start of production in the middle of July?

    Early reports said TESLA was planning to scale up to 500,000 cars per year.
    A battery pack production of 4000 per day is (4000x365=1460000) 1,460,000, just short of triple the earlier reported car production.
    Could it be that we are going to see a revised car production capacity?

    No, early production will be manual.

    If you want the 60kWh model you'll have to wait another 6mo at least

    Ben, being in Europe and with a 10/10/16 reservation, I will wait a lot longer than that anyways! ;) A delivery before the end of 2018 would already be great!!

    4,000 modules per day, not battery packs. Article started there are 4 modules per pack (presumably a 60kwh pack), and assuming that, 5 modules per 74khw pack.

    Assuming a 50/50 mix of 60khw and 74khw packs, that makes an annual production of 324,444 cars.

    They will need to boost that production again to reach their 500,000 goal.

    Not to mention some of these might be for PowerWalls and PowerPacks.

    I believe power wall and power pack production is on a different line because they use different chemistry.
    Vehicle packs are prioritised for energy density, stationary storage is prioritised for charging resilience

    I can't believe this information was made public. I'm guessing the inside source would get fired pretty quickly if his/her identity was revealed. I work in manufacturing automation (different industry) and cycle time and OEE targets as well as machine costs are all top secret. Maybe the auto industry is different.

    Hi Michael, thanks, I am happy to join.

    My question was about prospected arrival time of automation tech to assemble the m3 battery pack. If budget wasn't approved until Thursday, there is little time available to order, receive and build up the assembly line.

    Ben just posted assembly is manual in the beginning - so probably it's all on time and budget :)

    Cheers

    So yeah, what happened here? Is this story not reliable? And if it was, why would you remove something that's true? Inquiring minds want to know.
