Say at least six current and former workers of the enterprise. They argue that the road from the factory to the customer 90% of Tesla Model S and Model X to make one more stop — to eliminate manufacturing defects. However, Tesla does not pool repair buyers, unlike not so long ago when any purchased Zhiguli in need of repair, but eliminates the defects itself.

“Nezakryvayushhihsya doors, interior finish flaws, missing elements, leakage of the body” — these defects are often called polled by Reuters workers.

In fact, the company, the Agency stated that they conduct strict product quality control and carefully monitor the build quality. All found flaws in the production of “insignificant and eliminated in a few minutes.” However, the representatives of Tesla refused to provide data on the number of cars that showed manufacturing defects and to comment on the statements of the workers. A former head of the Tesla says that the defect correction takes much of the spending company funds.

Despite the claims of the Tesla representatives about the high quality of products, the flaws in the car were found more than once. Agency J. D. Power, working in market research, noted such defects as uneven body gaps and failures in the operation of the retractable door handles. On Internet forums you’ll find most complaints about “bugs” in the cabin, buggy software and low level of fit panels that allow the leakage of moisture into the interior.

“We never doubted that Tesla could create a fascinating mind and imagination is the product with the best on the market characteristics, but there is a big difference in how to design it and to produce product in large volumes,” he wrote in early November, Morningstar analyst David Winston.

Moreover, with increasing production quality problem can be really critical, because Model 3 needs to allow Tesla to reach the volume of production of 500 thousand cars a year.

According to unofficial sources, Elon Musk knows about the issue and even trying to solve it. According to him, workers in Silicon valley are not accustomed to working in high pace, so he hired additional staff from other regions of the country where there is automobile production.

It is interesting that, despite complaints, 91% of the current owners of the Tesla Model S and Model X interviewed the authoritative edition of Consumer Report, still again I would buy an electric car of this brand.

  • In mid-November, Tesla unveiled an electric truck and a Roadster model of the second generation. Both models made a splash because of its impressive characteristics.
  • Despite the low prevalence, many Russians would like to buy an electric car. But this prevents the meager offer on the market.
