Tesla CEO Elon Musk says he now has a “clear understanding of the path out of hell.”
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Musk gave viewers a look at the Model 3 production line that he’s anxious to improve. Musk even showed the “narrow” couch and conference room floor he’s taken to sleeping on during busy times at the factory.
Musk said Model 3 production trouble escalated into something he did not anticipate.
“I need to figure out how to be better and then we can be better at meeting goals,” Musk said.
The company “got complacent” about “core technology,” Musk said without providing specifics about the technology. He also said Tesla put too much new technology into the Model 3 all at once. “Should have staged it,” he said.
Musk also conceded that his production line is too robotic. He would like to add more human workers.
