Tesla has released a new video on the progress it is making in its efforts to produce fans from auto parts.

Several hospitals in the United States need ventilators to help save the most severely affected by the coronavirus.

In previous comments from last month, Musk was skeptical of the need for more fans.

The CEO believes that “we may have passed the inflection point for American cases – excluding New York.”

However, Musk has always tried to help by providing the necessary equipment, such as masks and ventilators.

Tesla and Musk’s Chinese team successfully secured a surplus of 1,000 ventilators from China and delivered them to hospitals in California earlier this month.

Last week, the CEO also said that Tesla plans to quickly reopen Gigafactory New York to manufacture ventilators for COVID-19 patients and she is also working with Medtronic to manufacture fans at its Fremont plant.

They also purchased a large number of BiPAP machines, which can be used as non-evasive ventilators, and they use their logistics network to deliver them to hospitals.

Today, Tesla released an update on its efforts to develop its own fans from auto parts:

The short video features several Tesla engineers, including Joseph Mardall, a Tesla technical director in charge of HVAC systems in the company’s vehicles, which shows a first prototype of their Tesla fan.

They are trying to use as many existing parts used in Tesla vehicles to speed up the design and manufacturing process.

In the diagram below, all the orange parts are vehicle parts:

They use some parts found in the Model 3 HVAC system, but we can also see obvious Tesla parts – like the Model 3 center screen and the infotainment computer:

Although they have a working prototype, it doesn’t seem like it’s ready to go into production.

One of the Tesla engineers featured in the video said:

“There is still a lot of work to be done, but we are doing our best to make sure we can help some people.”

The automaker did not say when it thought it could start producing and delivering the new device.
