New images reportedly from inside Tesla’s new factory in Shanghai further highlight how close the electric carmaker is to building cars in the country.
The Gigafactory 3 photos were shared on Chinese social media platform Weibo by a user known as Battery King _ (电池王_). They show the interior of the sprawling factory, which has a great deal of infrastructure installed including some manufacturing equipment.
A Model 3 body in the photos suggests the company is doing some calibration of the facility.
Tesla’s Shanghai operation will produce Model 3 and Model Y cars, including battery modules and packs. The company expects vehicle manufacturing to begin by the end of the year.
