Published on Apr 13, 2018

The pioneering electric car company Tesla has suffered a series of very public challenges since the beginning of this year. Its high-profile CEO Elon Musk called this a period of "production hell." Most of the troubles revolve around the company's Model 3 sedan, its first mid-priced, mass-produced electric car. Musk takes "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King on a tour of his Silicon Valley factory. It is the first time network cameras were allowed inside the production line.

    On a personal note, I sent him an Email when he was just starting his sports car devision he personally answered it. And explained he was trying to earn enough money to launch a affordable car anyone could buy. I'd like to see this taken a futher step cars that cost less then 10k to buy made of plastics and fiberglass, no fancy electronics just a basic people mover. These types of car could be made as ownership rentals. You keep and use it but if your on a long trip you can pull off to a swap station change cars with a full charge, or swap your power pack and finnish your trip. Swap stations could be all over. You could pay an anual fee for use of the service, you dont have to matain the car its all done for you. This could work for any model any where in the world. No more renting cars when you fly from one state to the other or international travel.

    I really hope these giant auto makers trying to get a piece of the cake like Porsche don't push Tesla out. Tesla took the risk and pioneered this all electric charge station ecosystem with auto pilot. They deserve the success.

    I don't hold him to his lack of achievement in keeping up with his promises. Not everything is under our control and things will sometimes go not as planned. But it's the fight that matters and Elon is nothing short of that. You could tell from his face, he's quite sleep deprived and deteriorating. Yet, he keeps fighting. He's definitely a great leader in our modern day world, one who's worth following.

    The truth is computers will never have a mind of their own.... Even complex machine learning algorithms will never produce a self-conscious machine.

    TESLA has no auto-pilot. Just paying for hype. All other companies (BMW, Mercedes, Lexus,etc) have better auto-pilot than Tesla

  • Mary Poppins - 3 days ago

    He's honest as to his obstacles, when he gets back on top we love him for his honestly and resiliency. He cares, he's not in denial and he's passionate. There is nothing negative about this interview, if anything it is passionate. Having worked in manufacturing it is NOT glamorous and .... and that's it. Just be honest, passionate, and prove em wrong and all is well.

  • Bret Lambky - 3 days ago

    Looks like you need a little lean manufacturing training. Along with some quality engineering. I’ll be happy to help.

  • Mickey Bitsko - 3 days ago

    Perhaps he should show people around the Model Three that they ordered years ago.
