    As usual, so many errors in that news report...
    The report states that people who take the factory tour have to "surrender" their smartphones and cameras because photos are not allowed. Yes, photos are not allowed but I've taken 3 factory tours and I never had to relinquish possession of my smartphone, I was simply told not to use it to take photos.
    The report says that Tesla makes the 17" screen display in the factory. That is obviously incorrect. Tesla does not manufacture LCD displays in the Fremont plant. It buys them.
    I could go on...

    Typical US TV news. They reduce the entire thing to 3 min sound bites and were not the first News crew to film inside the plant.

    Seems that the cars are batched by paint color. All dark colors on the same line, but couldn't tell if other parts of line were red cars, or just protective film on those vehicles getting earlier work done before battery coupling. Thoughts?

    Decent video! Thanks! I guess they were unaware of the BBC/National Geographic Megafactories episodes...? Still, it was very nice to see something much more recent.

    THAT'S MY CAAAAR !.... color :smile:
    Nice to see video. One thing he says that is not exactly true - no surprise - is that almost no one gets to see the battery being attached to the vehicle. The "almost no one" part is the assembly of the battery itself. Word awhile back was that the tour went through the elusive second floor of the factory, where the cells are put into packs, during the the expansion/retooling for the X etc. Did anyone get to see the birth of a pack?!
