Watch As Tesla Model S Enters Paint Process

Tesla Model S begins its colorful life on the carousel

In its latest tweet, Tesla shows how the Model S starts the paint process. The car’s aluminum structure is assembled, without any equipment installed. It moves inside the paint shop showers like a wagon on an extreme carousel.

Tesla currently offers seven colors for the Model S. The streamlined number of paint options allows Tesla to produce more cars than it would be able to if more hues were available.

Check out the nifty paint footage below.

This is a pre-treatment stage, right?

It is getting the blessing of Jesus in this video.

Its filmed vertical so it wouldn’t show the cigar-chomping guy with hairy shoulders who’s off to the side and hosing the frames down in a poorly-fitted undershirt.

I guess they said entering the paint process… This is little more than a wash stage prior to actual pre-treatments. They might as well showed a role of steel and said prior to painting.

This is yet another in a series of Tesla-related articles which will have readers scratching their heads wondering why IEVs chose to write an article about it. And in this case, wondering why the word “Paint Process” is in the title when this video shows no part of that.

The tweet from Tesla says it starts the paint process. It’s a pretty cool tweet. The beginning of the paint process is as such. The text explains that it’s on a carousel in the paint shop showers. We find the automation very neat to watch. This is especially true if you’ve been to the factory and seen it in person. When one of our writers finds something interesting to share, we share it. You don’t have to read it.

Well said

I’d rather my car get dunked completely in a bath then showered.

Hmmm, you know, we may be on to something here! Elon mentioned getting into the candy business and breaching Warren Buffet’s moat, well….


Gluten-Free Pretzels dunked in chocolate using the same process as the real Tesla frames at the paint shop!
