Interestingly, it was posted 2011-11-11. Too bad it wasn't at 11:11:11. :-)

Yeah, I think they stated it was still in development at that point and a lot of this 'Hand Work' is probably automated now.
Have you seen the video of the BMW i3 production line? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pa5_tudyAF8

The motor assembly part is incredible around 13 minutes !
Hopefully GM is building them in a similar manner.

I'm disappointed that the Bolt motor is not going to be Hecho In Detroit.
