I saw a Model 3 yesterday - which makes the sixth time, I think? They are not common, yet, but becoming less remarkable.

I still have not seen a new Leaf, in the wild.

Tesla has built a 3rd line in 3 weeks... under a big "tent" next to their factory.

The tent looks like this:


Looks more like one of those poly-skinned buildings than a tent to me, but still...

Tent is estimated to be about 900' long.

Some aerials as it was being built:

That little building at the top right? That adds like 2% to the floor space. What difference can that make?

It is apparently a whole assembly line for their profit-rich Model 3 performance (dual motor) trim?

A third assembly line isn't so much a 2% increase in floor space so much as a 50% increase in assembly lines. You'd think Musk would have tweeted pics of a ribbon cutting ceremony.
