    Tesla’s battery cell presentation at the Gigafactory: ‘the output of this thing is going to be insane’ [audio of Q&A]

    More and more details have been slowly trickling down since Tesla’s investor event at the Gigafactory last week following the start of battery cell production at the plant. We already reported that the company confirmed the start of battery cell production at the event and that Tesla CEO ELon Musk made an interesting comment about the Trump administration at the event.

    But now we get our best look at the event through pictures and a recording of a Q&A session with Musk and CTO JB Straubel. more…

    Shorting the stock and loosing a lot of money forced an investor to come to the event to see what Tesla is really about. The guy comes out impressed and not going to short them anymore. Anyone else doubtful on Tesla's ability to execute their plans???? :)

    Here's audio from the event. Sound isn't great but give it a listen...

    Yikes. The audio is really poor. Was there anything super cool worth cringing for 35mins for?

    Thanks for the link garsh,but I had already read that before posting. What I didn't read is where it failed. What fail? When did it fail? When did this happen? This info is new to me.
    Just wanted to be informed as to why Elon who shy away from the river rouge question.

    That link was awesome. Thanks trev!!

    I found an edited version and this comment I found super interesting.

    Elon: [22:50] - […] keep our powder dry with respect to Model 3 announcements. There's certainly […] on Model 3 […]. Yeah. Anything you want to add?

    JB: [23:05] - I don't think so right now, but as Elon said there's upcoming announcements, upcoming changes and things that we can't completely talk about just yet.

    The comment 'upcoming changes'. Some awesome news releases coming people !!

    We'll know a lot more soon. Final reveal is coming in the spring and after that is the run up to production. This is going to be a very busy year of Tesla news for us.

    Our community is going to see a population explosion too so brace yourselves ;)

    This sounds political. Let's stay away from that here.

    Probably why Elon didn't want to comment further.

    Agreed.

    To be clear: that was just a guess on my part.
    To be more clear: I don't think unionization was a mistake. Workers were abused horribly before the unions came about.

    To help explain my guess (without getting political): with a union in place, an issue anywhere within the entire vertical integration pipeline would cause every single worker to go on strike. Breaking apart this vertical integration was Ford's legal (and thankfully non-lethal) way to limit the power of a union to cause that kind of loss of productivity & revenue.

    Remember that what your saying may be right for the situation in the US, where trade unions have become political. But this politisation is certainly not the case in the whole world. In many western countries there isn't confrontation but cooperation between employers and trade unions. To the benefits of both, and employees and society as a whole. Though there are also cases where old fashioned trade unions are blocking necessary development.
    That said, I think we agree @garsh.
