Tesla employees say to expect more Model 3 delays, citing inexperienced workers, manual assembly of batteries
- CEO Elon Musk has already had to disappoint eager customers with Model 3 delays due to manufacturing "bottlenecks." Gigafactory employees expect he will have to, again.
- Tesla employees say the company was making batteries for its Model 3 vehicles partly by hand as recently as mid-December.
- Employees also said that quality control workers were not experienced, and two said that some batteries are leaving the factory with a potentially serious defect, a claim that Tesla vigorously denies.
