Tesla Model-S Technical Documents

Elon Musk: "The average speed on the line [at the Tesla Freemont factory] is incredibly slow… Including S & X, it’s maybe 5 cm per second. This is very slow. I’m confident we can get to at least 1 metre per second. So, a 20 fold increase at least. To put that into perspective, 1 metre per second is a slow walk, or at least a medium speed walk, a fast walk would be 1.5 metres per second. And then the fastest humans can run over 10 metres per second. So, if we’re only doing 0.05 metres per second that’s very slow."
