Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk warned on Tuesday about the difficulties of speeding up production as an expert cautioned the carmaker's increased reliance on large-scale aluminium parts could bring new manufacturing challenges. While carmakers such as Mercedes-Benz have said automation has limitations, Musk has pressed on with plans to create a hyper-automated factory, which he refers to as the "alien dreadnought", or "the machine that builds the machine". Musk's warning comes ahead of a "battery day" later on Tuesday, when Tesla is expected to unveil steps to boost battery production.
