    Wondering who is making the various major sub assembly components, who makes the motor? We know Continental AG was doing parts of the electronics package but We know the battery is a Tesla/Panasonic partnership, who makes the electronics package like the BMS, etc. I know that mobile eye is doing some of the self driving components. I'm just wondering about the supply chain.

    Rambling question, sorry for the lack of editing.

    I think Panasonic is now cut out of the battery deal with the Gigafactory up and running.

    Um, better check again. The gigafactory is a joint Tesla/Panasonic effort.

    Tesla makes the motor. They have winding facilities in the Fremont factory.
