What is happening: Tesla is now facing a new crisis as it ramps up production of the Model 3 sedan. Spare parts are needed more than ever for electric car repairs, and Tesla is finding it difficult to meet demands.
Why is this happening: The answer is simple, the more Model 3 sedans Tesla make and sell, the more repairs and spare parts they have to prepare for.
Waiting time: So far, some s have had to wait weeks, if not months, for repairs. This is due to a lack of spare parts at service centers.
Supply chain: Tesla has got its manufacturing supply chain working to push the sedans, but they are still working on perfecting their post-sale supply chain. Elon Musk revealed that Tesla has been storing spare parts in distribution warehouses, rather than service centres, which has counted against them.
