I'm not arguing there is NO automation. But it's definitely not FULLY automated.

My dad did design work for division of Tyco that made syringes. That was fully automated. 100,000sqft of production and a single janitor automated.

Tesla? Definitely a lot of people visible. http://www.flickr.com/photos/77735091@N08/7398173016

I reckon Tesla's automation compares well with any other automaker in the same stage of the product life-cycle. I don't see a complex product such as an automobile ever being automated to the point of needing only a janitor to mind the factory. There is no lack of robots, which is the statement that prompted my response.
