Is Tesla Really Going To Build Its Own Car Carriers? Elon Musk Says Yes

It turns out that the answer to Tesla’s distribution problems is for the EV maker to build its own car carriers.

Tesla is currently upgrading their logistics system but it’s running into an “extreme” shortage of car carrier trailers, according to Elon Musk. The company’s CEO tweeted the above in response to a customer complaining about the delay in the delivery of his Model 3 Dual Motor.

Musk also added that Tesla started building their own car carriers this weekend to alleviate the load.

The rather surprising announcement raises more questions than answers, as the process of building a car carrier trailer out of the blue requires a rather long legal procedure before someone would even begin production -assuming that all parts and assembly line are ready and waiting. So, to believe that Tesla is actually going to build its own car carriers this weekend seems a little far fetched to say the least.

Why Tesla isn’t simply hiring additional trucks to cover their needs and instead decided to build their own car carriers is baffling at this point and will probably remain so, until this whole thing gets clarified.

Tesla is currently facing more logistical problems than production delays, according to Musk who’s under pressure from many sides as he has to prove that the company can deliver consistent production numbers. On top of that, Musk said that Tesla will be consistently profitable, starting with Q3 of this year.
