Episode 30: Advantages of Module-Built Door Construction

We’re at episode 30 of Munro’s Tesla Model Y Performance teardown, where Munro & Associates CEO Sandy Munro discusses the Model Y’s module built door construction.

We start the segment going back to 1987 and something that almost cost Sandy his job. Sandy walks us down memory lane – with photos! – before demonstrating the advantages of Tesla’s module built door construction.

Throughout this episode, Sandy analyzes the Model Y’s aluminum door modules, including the internals of the door and summarizes topics including side impact countermeasures, manufacturability enablers and potential areas for improvement.
