Musk: Tesla Enters Car Carrier Building Biz To Speed Model 3 Deliveries

It’s a logistical nightmare to deliver all these loads of Model 3s, but Musk thinks he has a solution.

Tesla is running out of car carriers as it attempts to deliver the Model 3 at a breakneck pace, so CEO Elon Musk has turned a portion of Tesla into car carrier builders. Brilliant solution to a problem.

Here’s the Tweet revealing Tesla’s newest manufacturing gig:

Turns out that delivering Model 3s in such a high volume requires some creative thinking. And Musk is certainly known for thinking outside the box.

All eyes are on Tesla this month as the automaker pushes to deliver more Model 3 than in any single month in the past. It’s make or break time now and when a problem such as a car carrier shortage presents, you can bet Tesla will have a solution.

Range: 310 miles; 136/123 mpg-e. Still maintaining a long waiting list as production ramps up slowly, the new compact Tesla Model 3 sedan is a smaller and cheaper, but no less stylish, alternative, to the fledgling automaker’s popular Model S. This estimate is for a Model 3 with the “optional” (at $9,000) long-range battery, which is as of this writing still the only configuration available. The standard battery, which is expected to become available later in 2018, is estimated to run for 220 miles on a charge.
