Tesla Model S Stars On “How It’s Made” – Video

Battery Meets Model S

Unfortunately, the complete, official “How It’s Made” video of Tesla Model S production is behind a pay wall, but at least there’s this “Part Two” video of the episode featuring the Model S.

And no, a “Part One” doesn’t exist.  At least not one that we could find.

Here’s the video description:

“Picture your dream car: it probably looks like a Tesla Model S. Have you ever wondered just how that machine was made? Join the How It’s Made crew as we go to its birthplace, revealing the inner workings and gorgeous exterior.”

    here is the part I. I think that this part one was more interesting because it featured the electric motor production details.

      It really is the best part! I would have never thought that the motors in the Model S were partly hand made.

      In the US that link won’t play and gives this error: “This video contains content from Discovery Communications, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.”

    Hmm.. The 0-60 figure they quoted was for the low-end model. (5.4 seconds)

    1. Josh Bryant says:

      I think 5.4 is the Tesla’s quoted time on the S85. It is 5.9 on the S60. S85D is now 5.1, P85 was 4.2, P85D is 3.2.

      Not that I should really know all of those off the top of my head.

    When someone makes What killed the internal combustion engine documentary, they can point to the 90% efficiency of electric vehicles.

      That truth won’t get out with Fox ( Exxon ) News.
      The right wing will be the Last to Know any kind of facts like that.

        Do you have anything to back that up? Or just emptying out what little is in your head…

          No, he’s just seen Fox “News”. This is a news station started by a spin doctor that uses a message calendar. Lots of lemmings out there who eat it up.

    YouTube wouldn’t let the first link play. Here is Wireds version.

    Inside EVs: what country are you in? UK?

    In the US, I am able to watch the whole thing free, but it is not full screen, here:

    Ellison: that video is by Wired, not the same, a different take, which I’ve already seen.
