VIDEO: Tesla Model S body assembled, ready for paint

In the new two minute short, automated robot arms are slinging parts around as they move down the line into welding and assembly stations. 

 

It's Tuesday and that means a new installment of the "Inside Tesla" blog. 
 
Last week we got a glimpse at the stamping process, where the Model S parts are formed from aluminum blanks. In the new two minute short, automated robot arms are slinging parts around as they move down the line into welding and assembly stations. 
 

 

The result "is called a 'Body in White' – a term that refers to a vehicle body ready to be painted."

To top it off, the Model S is now officially street legal. Reservation holders can begin test drives the day after the first delivery is made on June 22.
