This Chicago detailer shows why Tesla could use the lockdown to improve paint quality.
The Tesla Model Y emerged under huge expectations. It would have advanced manufacturing methods. It was also supposed to be the car with the least wiring harnesses ever made. When it was finally released, we discovered it is the first Tesla with a heat pump. Paint must also be better, right? According to this Chicago Auto Pros YouTube channel video, that’s not the case.
We have already talked about this, and it is always worth mentioning: Engineers avoid buying cars that just started being manufactured. The dynamic of this process is that they improve a lot with time, which makes cars after three or four years in production much better than the first ones out of the assembly lines.
That is evident in the video above. The fact that the Model 3 paint is under scrutiny for quite a while already did not help, unfortunately. The Chicago Auto Pros have not measured how thick or how hard it is, such as the Finnish Goods Inspection has back in August 2019, but they promise new videos with this car. We hope they measure these aspects of the paint, such as Munro & Associates have done to help us in November 2019.
