Elon puts quality, stiffness and an all category 5 star safety rating first. Build quality is so high because he expects the model 3 to last 50 years or one million miles.

The past always repeats. Very old days: "what is this steam engine? Can't we use horses instead?! We can't trust this tech." *Proceeds to use steam* Old days: "what is this combustion engine? Can't we use steam instead?! We can't trust this tech." *Proceeds to use combustion engine* Today: " what is this electric car? Can't we use combustion engine instead?! We can't trust this tech" *Time will repeat/has repeated*

electric cars existed before internal combustion engines and made up a good chunk of cars in the 20s, ICEs evolved much faster but now EVs are catching up and will overtake them in capability somewhere around 2040s.

*The body is too stiff* Well with a very light mechanism there are sure to be a lot of extra free weight to put shit in. HMMM... WHY NOT USE TO MAKE THE CAR STRONGER TO MAKE IT SAFER?

The front ends look like early 90's pontiacs.....no vision in exterior design, and lets be real, stiff body makes it safer, and if Ford, chrysler fiat, Or GM made this the price would go up, the quality would go down, and it would kill the brand....

OK,slight problem here.When he looks at the motor,why is it not a 3 phase induction motor hmm?Nicola Tesla's motor had no weedy little permanent mangnets,.6 or 12 copper bars give all the reactive torque you need.So it is NOT a Tesla.Those magnets lose their strength fast enough to prefer Tesla's original design.

the model S and X use 3 phase induction motors, the model 3 uses a permanent magnet motor because its cheaper and more efficient system.

Did they take into consideration that the body was built like that for safety. all those areas are crumple zones, where the impact force will be spread through different directions. In fact Tesla model 3 his a 5 star safety rating, as elon said himself, for tesla safety comes first. i don't mind a heavier car, if its more safe, i don't care if it takes longer to build.

Some of the shit used to produce parts comes from mines where so2 and co2 are constantly released and the energy used to charge the batteries usually come from burning fossil fuels in big power plants releasing more co2 and other shit into the atmosphere

If you're wondering what type of motor the Tesla uses its not brushed or brushless it's actually an AC induction motor invented by Nikola Tesla, hence the name, Tesla.

I think Tesla is a stepping stone only, to get the rest of the industry to move to electric vehicles faster than they otherwise would have. Tesla's mission is already accomplished, and I wouldn't be shocked if after completing the Gigafactory, Tesla got sold off, giving Musk a portion of the wad of cash that SpaceX will need to get the colony kick started on Mars.

The old guys in this video are the best in the world at what they do. Tesla should hire them to get control of their build quality issues. No one argues that Tesla has the best technology. Their problem currently is the build quality sucks and they have no clue how to manufacture cars. I have friends and family who own Tesla’s and they spend more time at the shop being repaired then actually driving.

So basically his ideal car is one that is made as cheaply as possible to just get by, rather than one that is superior and causes the company to still make a profit, although not as much a profit as they could. SORRY MONROE, but that is what most of the auto industry has been doing for a good part of a century and why they suck and we all want to embrace this change and new company. The entrenched auto forced our hand by taking the cheaper route to greed by making existing ice cars the same and now less desirable. Well no more of that, Tesla is changing the way things go. Kind of like how Asian cars came in a few decades ago and got the American cars to step up their game. Well, now it is to a new level and makes everyone step up. Otherwise nothing goes anywhere and we keep living in the past. GET WITH THE PROGRAM MONROE!

The other thing that occurred to me is that Tesla uses a large press to form many of the body components. A press can only make a part with a certain amount of curvature. So a larger fender well needs to be made of a few parts each with a small curve. The fact is that having this press is advantageous and may be less costly so attaching parts together at the end evens out. Monroe may not be accounting for this. Other manufacturers may make one whole part, but are using other processes which cost more to make each complete part as apposed to less costly smaller parts. So that way by making one part in the end there is really not much difference in cost. I am not sure that these difference are always accounted for. This is evident in all the criticism about how the tesla factory has more staff per cars made. What all of these critics miss out on AGAIN, is that Tesla makes more of their parts than anyone else in house which requires more staff. They also make their own seats, which I have heard that nobody else does. Other oems outsource more parts and the labor used elsewhere is not accounted for in their comparison. In other words, Tesla has more staff because they are making more of the car and its components. They are not just assembling someone elses parts which more oems are doing in comparison.

Aside from argument against his body criticism that the car is so safe and strong there is another point I was introduced to. In an accident with traditional cars with large single piece components, it requires larger disassembly and removal to rebuild a damaged vehicle. In a tesla, if the body components are made up of sections, a body shop can remove, replace or repair a section more easily without as costly a repair. Making the car more modular and more easily fixed for less cost, while still retaining strength and performance. The fact is that we know most manufacturers do not care about what things will cost later for the owner or insurance. They do not care about making more easily serviced designs, they only care about their profits out the door and the hell with everyone else and the consumer after the fact. I have seen countless fords, gms and other american brands that have piss poor designs making routine service more difficult, when the asian cars are much easier to work on and are more intelligently designed. Tesla spending more on manufacturing for the benefit of everyone else and the consumer is a good thing because they care and believe in doing what is right. There is no reason why they can not do what is right and still make a profit. Everyone else only things they can succeed by being greedy and dishonest.

True on principle, but where you and I live, cars are written off very easily. Just because you glue 2 pieces together doesn't mean it's easier to repair than a 1-piece. They don't use Phillips-head screws to attach pieces, by the looks of it they weld them - meaning it's just as difficult to replace as it would be if it was just one. Suomi mainittu!

This is all bullshit. Ask any electrical engineer and he will show you with a handful of calculations: e-mobility is a deadend because the power grid and the infrastructure cannot support e-cars for everybody. Either indidividualized traffic will vanish and we get "Minority Report"-style traffic, or individualized traffic will prevail, then it can only be hydrogen. Also, Tesla's cars are very expensive and lack interior quality big time. On the German Autobahn - the few Teslas you see there - are never in the left lane but in the right lane creeping in slow motion at 80 mph or less, often even behind big trucks at 50 mph. Ridiculous. Nobody will pay those insane Tesla prices without having the real world Mecedes-Benz or Porsche performance. It is silly marketing: Kick down and blind the customers by the initial acceleration which is absolutely useless and no decisive feature...divert the customer's attention away from all the low quality surrounding them and all the disadvantages like the silly touchpad controls (distracted driving is already really bad in the US). As usual: Seems only to work with dumb Americans. Europeans are immediately very critical when expected basic features are missing (too much touchscreen is seen as negative, interior quality must be there, daily driving abilities need to reasonable, even on fast motorways) Sorry, from an objective point of view Tesla is nothing but an empty hype who builds mediocre e-cars for a bunch of hipsters. Tesla has no concept and no solution for the traffic problems of the future, and there is nothing in those cars others could not build as good or far better. You actually see more i3 in Germany than Tesla. Also on top of that, Tesla could be seen as more stoneage than the excellent Euro6 Diesels available in Europe: Tesla cars are VERY heavy. In most of the cases only one person will be in them. So - it is already one of the biggest, most pivotal resource problems (even for efficient European compact cars) that individualized traffic leads to an insane ratio of 70-80 kg of human (or 150-200 kg for the typical dumb fat American XD) in 1300-1500 kg of car. Teslas are as heavy as super high quality upper class Mercedes Benz, which means, the ratio of weight of the car to weight of 1 human is even worse. Clearly a dinosaur without any answers and solutions for the future.

Okay multiple problems. They're neodymium not neodydium or whatever the guy said. A Halbach array does increase the strength of the magnetic field in the direction it's created for, however, it is also more likely to cause demagnetization. Then of course, the whole "too stiff" part is just fucking ridiculous.
