  • Cuomo Says Tesla-Made Ventilators Will Not Be Ready In Time for COVID-19 Apex in New York

Last week, the CEO also said that Tesla is planning to quickly reopen Gigafactory New York to make Tesla Ventilator machines for COVID-19 patients and it is also working with Medtronic to make ventilators at its Fremont factory.

Asked on Sunday about Tesla's efforts, though, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said, "Nobody can make you a ventilator right now in two weeks".

Musk exchanged tweets with de Blasio in March over a proposal for Musk's companies, Tesla and civilian space project SpaceX, to build and send ventilators to NY, the city hit hardest by covid-19. Most of the vehicle parts used for the ventilator prototype come from the Model 3 spares.

On March 30, Ford said it would produce 50,000 ventilators in the following 100 days at a plant in MI in cooperation with General Electric's healthcare unit, and could then build 30,000 per month as needed. In the video, the Tesla engineers say they wanted to use parts "that we know really well", that "we know the reliability of", and that are "available in volume". The mixing chamber is what Tesla uses in its electric cars.

When Will Tesla Ventilators Begin Production and Reach Hospitals?

Ford Motor Company is also using its resources for good, recently joining forces with 3M and GE Healthcare to ramp up production of much-needed respirators, ventilators, and face shields.

As the Tesla engineers explained, there is still a long way to go before the ventilators can come out of the prototype stage. In addition to making plans to manufacture ventilators, Musk pledged to purchase the devices and send them to hospitals in need. Tesla too has been working towards the cause and for which, they have been designing a ventilator.
