Munro & Associates, a consulting firm specializing in automotive teardowns and reverse engineering, recently gave a two-thumbed endorsement of Tesla’s electric vehicles, while Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg expressed a two-thumbed revulsion.
Munro & Associates, headed by Sandy Munro, carefully disassembled and examined a Tesla Model 3 and judged it to be of “astounding quality.” Munro commented that the Model 3 was “as close to perfect as anything we’ve ever seen.” He further praised Tesla’s use of lighter and stronger materials, sophisticated manufacturing processes and the overall design of the vehicle.
Conversely, Buttigieg proclaimed his disdain for the electric carmaker in a recent interview with PBS NewsHour. The former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, stated that he found Tesla’s vehicles to be “low-quality, over-marketed, and underperforming.” He went on to criticize the company’s past production problems and lack of accountability on safety issues.
Munro & Associates’ assessment of Tesla’s electric vehicles stands in stark contrast to Buttigieg’s criticism, showcasing the complexity and nuances of the automotive industry. Tesla’s innovative engineering and advanced technologies have enabled it to become a leader in the electric car market. Despite Buttigieg’s reservations, Munro & Associates’ thorough evaluation has confirmed the exceptional quality and performance of Tesla’s vehicles.
