Ford executives poked entertaining at Tesla’s tent-covered assembly line and posted photographs of Ford vans and vehicles made use of in Tesla’s provider fleet.
Speaking to The Wall Road Journal about conquering Model 3 generation problems, the outspoken executive boasted of substantial morale at Tesla’s factories irrespective of the delays hitting manufacturing targets. To enhance the place, he created a stark comparison to the mood at Ford’s assembly plants.
“I assume you can find a superior vibe — I feel the electricity is superior go to Ford, it appears to be like a morgue,” he explained.
Ford’s vice president of communications, Mark Truby, issued a Twitter retort bashing Tesla’s “makeshift tent” assembly line and pointing out that an F-150 rolls off the line in Dearborn “every single 53 seconds.”
Other Twitter end users posted pictures of Ford vans and pickup vehicles adorned with official Tesla logos, highlighting motor vehicles that are seemingly used in the California-dependent automaker’s services fleet.
Tesla is hoping to shortly establish naysayers incorrect by pushing Model 3 output to 5,000 units per 7 days.
No doubt the vibe is funky in that “makeshift tent,” but it’s not undesirable possibly across the avenue at the #FordRouge plant where by a high quality, higher-tech F-150 rolls off the line every single 53 seconds like clockwork.
