In the video, engineers at Tesla Engineering show off prototypes and a schematic laying out the proposed ventilator design as they explain how they are re-purposing various auto parts for the much needed medical devices.
“We want to use parts we know really well, we know the reliability of and we can go really fast and they’re available in volume,” Tesla Engineering Director Joseph Mardall said in the four-minute video, which has racked up more than 1.5 million views in less than 24 hours. Mardall stood in front of a diagram that indicated that many of the parts in the ventilator’s design are used in Tesla vehicles.
A prototype ventilator laid out on a table in the lab included a “mixing chamber” that, according to a Tesla engineer, was a part used in Tesla(TSLA) cars.
Another more complete prototype shown later in the video used a touchscreen display from a Model 3, as well as vehicle control machinery from a Model 3, according to other Tesla employees in the video.
Instead of the usual Model 3 displays, the ventilator screen showed plot lines for what would be a patient’s lung activity based on the pressure, flow and volume of air moving in and out of the pump.
The prototype ventilator includes a backup battery and self-contained air supply that could allow it to work when not plugged into hospital power and oxygen supplies. Those should provide 20 to 40 minutes during which a patient can be moved from one place to another in a hospital, according to the video.
Tesla employees in the video did not indicate when the ventilator they’re working on might be ready for mass production. The company also did not immediately respond to requests for more details on the project.
Tesla engineers have spoken with engineers from ventilator maker Medtronic, according to both companies, but it was not clear how much, if any, involvement Medtronic may have had with the ventilator project featured in the video.
Separately, SpaceX, the commercial space company also led by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, is making a critical part for Medtronic ventilators, according to Medtronic.
Musk has previously downplayed the seriousness of the the Covid-19 pandemic. On March 6th, he tweeted “The coronavirus panic is dumb” to his more than 30 million followers.
Other automakers, including General Motors and Ford, have started working on ventilators using designs from medical technology companies

The mopeds are proper motor-bikes, designed by engineers for a broad spectrum of customers. And lets face it, our MB’s are just mopeds. Our wheels are bigger, but they’re mopeds just the same.
But the reality is, there is not much for us to use. The best part about a moped is the brakes. They use proper drums, with big axles, good stuff for sure!
Sadly, the offset is all wrong for the China motors which is a major bummer because that is what most of us run. The rear hub has both a drive side and bicycle side sproket but they’re too wide and chains just don’t align. The other bummer is that the China motors require a clutch lever So if you have front brake, you end up with three levers if you run the moped rear hub.
The front hubs are good stuff too, but again, they have big axles, so if you want to run them, you need to open up the dropouts as the axles are bigger than bicycle stuff.
Their motors are just plain funky, they don’t fit in bicycles. They use good levers/controls, but there are so many choices for levers/controls that you really don’t need to steal from the moped scene. Beyond that, everything is different, so there is nothing left.
Now if you run a Morini motor, it’s a whole new world. The chain offsets are just right, and since the Morini has a centrifugal clutch, you only need two levers. A perfect match. But not many folks are running Morini motors.
So sadly, the mopeds are in a class of their own. Of course, I have a rockin’ set of big axle moped hubs in my Morini bike, but my China motored bike runs bicycle hubs, laced into Worksman wheels. Each the optimal setup for the motor used.

Perform preventive maintenance and make timely repairs, increase horsepower and improve handling and braking for better overall performance, and give your car, truck, or SUV the unique appearance that will have heads turning wherever you roll. You can do it all with parts and accessories from CARiD. Unlike some on-line aftermarket vendors that have repair parts but can’t help you dress up your ride, or sell exterior accessories but don’t have the wheels and tires you need to complete the look, we’re the one-stop destination for all your automotive essentials. No matter what you want to do with your vehicle or where you get your kicks – on the street, at the track, or off-road – you’ll find quality, name brand parts and accessories on our digital shelves to turn your automotive dreams into reality.
Improving your vehicle’s functionality and aesthetic appeal will make driving and the whole ownership experience more enjoyable, and we have products for every taste and budget. Protect your interior and boost comfort and ambiance with custom logo floor mats, custom seat covers, steering wheel cover and shift knob, personalize your cabin with a wood dash kit and custom gauges, and make any trip more enjoyable with a digital media receiver and full range speakers. Shield your truck bed from damage with a bed mat or liner and sleek, low profile tonneau cover. Enhance your haulers cargo carrying and towing capabilities with bed organizers, a bed extender, tie-down anchors and straps, trailer hitches & towing accessories, and more. And you can get a boost into the cabin and the bed with a set of running boards or side steps, bed steps & tailgate steps, and hitch steps.
Car buffs are proud of what they drive, but few are satisfied with factory stock appearance. There’s no better way to put a personal stamp on your ride than with a custom look and our range of exterior accessories is packed with the products to make it happen. Our selection includes chrome trim, custom grilles, and a huge assortment of body mods. From bumper valances, rear spoilers, custom hoods and complete body kits for road burners, to off-road bumpers, grille guards, body armor and fender flares guaranteed to boost the toughness factor on 4x4s, we have what you need to create a distinctive machine. LED lighting is the hottest visual appeal booster, plus you get better visibility for safer driving. We have LED headlights, tail lights, halo rings, off-road light bars and more, including custom LED light kits that create a dazzling display you control from your smartphone. Few mods can improve curb appeal and performance like a set of custom wheels and tires, and our selection is unrivaled, but if you’re unsure what will fit your ride our wheel and tire experts are just a phone call away.
No matter how powerful and fast the factory made it, we know you’re not content with OE performance either. Whether you just want a slight power boost and nice rumble
