How It’s Made — Dream Car Tesla Model S (Video)

I am not a car buff. I’m actually not a car kind of person at all. However, there is just something about a Tesla. So with all the terrific Tesla videos out there, I decided to add this one to my Tesla views and I suggest you do too. “How it’s Made, Dream Cars Tesla Model S” is a video of a Tesla in production — from the ground up. It is absorbing. The video has many excellent visuals with an explanation of what is happening each step of the way. Then comes the satisfaction — it is all put together and drives smoothly off the bamboo floor to the street.

One of my favorites parts is that Tesla turned the issue of its lithium-ion batteries into an asset. An electric car’s unique feature, Tesla’s lithium-ion battery pack weighs in at almost 1,200 pounds, but it runs the length and width of the car. Watch that enormous battery as it attached under the Tesla at the end of production (16:40 in). Take a look at how sleek the battery is. It adds strength and rigidity to the car and lowers its center of gravity, increasing traction and handling. Built from the ground up, the Model S has incredible safety features, and the battery improves the safety of the car.

Watch the sewing machine as well. Yes, Tesla’s factory has sewing machines to bind coils securely in places. The more tightly bound the wires are, the more efficient the motor works.

Now that you have seen a Tesla built from the ground up, check out a walk-through of the Tesla P85D. As Christopher DeMorro puts it, “there’s so much more to the top-of-the-line Model S than raw, phone-breaking acceleration.”

Or come on, watch Tesla’s wild acceleration (one more time). Here are some of our favorites: 7 Top Tesla Model S P85D Reaction Videos and Tesla P85D Test Drive & Reactions (5 Videos).
