Tesla Motors could open a factory in France

Tesla Model 3

The Tesla Model 3 is the latest model introduced by the company of Elon Musk.

Are you thinking Tesla Motors to build a new factory in France in order to supply the growing demand for their latest releases? Well, that is what has hinted the own Segolene Royal, Energy Minister of France. Is more, by his words to a well-known medium of information gaul, we assume that the announcement of the construction of this new factory would be made before the end of this year.

But, Where would it be located this new factory Tesla Motors? Well, that would come into play a promise made by President Francois Hollande. Who is committed to their voters in to close the nuclear power plant located in Fessenheim, in the Alsace region, very close to the border with Germany. Well, this place would be the site chosen by Elon Musk for the construction of its factory in Europe.

Obviously, to be able to materialize this project, it would have to face many challenges such as the transformation of the facilities. Remember we are talking about a nuclear facility (and old).

Tesla Motors needs more production capacity to supply the demand of the Model 3.

Tesla Motors has to cope with the growing demand

Since it was unveiled the new Tesla Model 3 and, as we have said earlier, much has been discussed about whether the impressive demand that has been generated in just a few days (plus 230,000 reserves) have led us to think of the compromised situation in which it has gotten the well-known company of electric cars. Will you be able to cope with such demand? Because the truth is that currently, would NOT be in a position to be able to cater all the reservations of the Tesla Model 3.

And not speaking of the Tesla Model X, a model that has suffered numerous delays to get to market and, currently, also has a significant waiting list to receive a unit.

what estimated delivery Date? ¡Second half of 2019!

So it is. And no, this is not a joke. We have contacted an acquaintance who has called you to Tesla Motors and to reserve your unit and that has been the “estimated date” of delivery that it has given the company Elon Musk. o Second half of 2019! And is that in your time, the company has already confirmed that they would have priority to existing customers of the company, by itself, is the first Tesla that you are going to buy, you’ll be in the last positions of the waiting list.

therefore, and in connection with the previous point, we raise the question of whether Tesla Motors will be able to cope by itself to the substantial demand who are creating their latest releases, or in need of the help of a third party (outsourced). In any case, it is clear that with its current production capacity, can not maintain this trend in the short term. Tesla needs more production capacity, or at this rate we’ll go to half a decade of waiting.
