Elon Musk says new Tesla factories are "losing billions of dollars" "Both Berlin and Austin factories are gigantic money furnaces right now," he says. "It's really like a giant roaring sound, which is the sound of money on fire," he adds.

Musk: "How do we keep the factories operating so we can pay people and not go bankrupt?" Austin factory in particular was "losing insane money" as it faced challenges producing Tesla's new 4680 batteries. "The tooling necessary" for making its conventional 2170 batteries "is stuck in China," Musk said.

Musk has often complained about how hard manufacturing is. Now, with the current economic situation, he's being reminded yet again. Musk has said he wants to create a self-sustaining electric car company. He has also said he would like to build a solar power plant.
