Tesla Motors - JB Straubel - University of Nevada, Reno - 10/11/15

JB Straubel was in front of the University of Nevada on October 11, 2015

He talked about the history of Tesla and Batteries as usual of course, but mentioned a few key news

First, most Tesla employees are now working on the more affordable Model 3, announced for 2017 with 200 miles of range; Since it will sale for 35,000 USD before incentive, and has a different platform from the Model S and X, it has to be redesigned completely and that is obviously a big task

About the GigaFactory, the good news is that Tesla will be hiring soon, with a target of 6,500 employees (!) and will start producing battery cells in few weeks while the construction continues ! :)

He also said a few words about the PowerWall & PowerPack, which are mandatory tools to make renewable energy available 24/7 and make transportation carbon free using solar and wind; Here again the GigaFactory will produce all the necessary 18650 cells for them

His word for the end: "Work where your passion is" (Steve Jobs was saying the same thing), this way you will not mind spending endless hours on your work and eventually makes breakthroughs and succeed ...

JB Straubel : "Our mission is to change the world" !
