Tesla’s New Car Assembly Tech to Slash Production Costs

Tesla has always been known for subverting tradition, and its integrated die-casting technology is a good example. Now, according to Insideevs, Tesla plans to implement a new way of assembling cars, which they believe will help reduce costs and simplify the assembly process.

This method is called “unboxed” assembly technology, which will abandon the traditional assembly line operation method, and no longer allow the car body to be assembled like a box along the assembly line through various stations in sequence. Tesla’s “deconstructed” approach involves assembling different parts of the car simultaneously in different areas of the factory, then bringing together several large subassemblies at the end.

It is claimed that this approach can cut production costs in half and require about 40% less factory space than traditional car factories for the same output. If true, it will inevitably greatly reduce Tesla’s manufacturing costs, thereby lowering the price of the entire vehicle.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has repeatedly hinted that this new production method will be adopted, but has not disclosed specific details. So far, he has only mentioned that the new technology used to produce the upcoming $25,000 model will be “revolutionary” and “bigger than anywhere else in the world.” Any car manufacturing system is far more advanced.”

The affordable Tesla model is expected to begin production (or at least launch) in late 2024 or early 2025, with Musk confirming that the project is “very close to completion” without revealing further details.

The Automotive News website quoted Mathew Vachaparampil, CEO of engineering and automotive benchmarking company Caresoft, as saying that Tesla first verified the feasibility of the “deconstruction” assembly method through digital simulation. He did not disclose the results of the simulation test, but he did confirm that this innovative way of manufacturing cars will significantly reduce Tesla’s manufacturing costs.

It’s unclear where Tesla will pioneer this “deconstructed” approach, but it could be related to its upcoming affordable models. Considering that Tesla is currently building or expanding multiple factories, this technology may be first put into production in places such as China, Berlin, and even Mexico.
