You’ve never seen efficiency and technology like this. The parts are delivered via mass transit and delivered to the production floor by robots. The floor is beautiful Canadian maple, and yet it delivers electricity cordlessly to rolling workstations via induction. The power tools used by the workers count how many bolts they’ve installed, so you know exactly where you are in the build. Individual cranes suspend the cars at the appropriate height and angle relative to the height of the worker. It’s so safe that car buyers themselves can freaking hop on the assembly line and help build the cars.
