Tesla making ventilators from car parts

Coronavirus

(CNN) — Tesla says it is revving up work to help address the shortage of ventilators for COVID-19 patients.

The carmaker released a video Monday showing engineers designing ventilators using car parts.

The engineers say those parts include what’s called a “mixing chamber” from Tesla vehicles, as well as a touchscreen from Tesla’s Model 3 sedan.

The video did not say when the ventilators will be ready for production.
