Tesla has released a time-lapsed video offering a look at production at Giga Shanghai.
The video was posted to the Tesla China Weibo account, saying “Production, assembly, quality inspection, waiting for delivery. The rhythm is orderly step on the point, one word: Steady!”
Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk has long touted the company’s focus on factories. Musk said in 2016 that the company’s Fremont aimed to be an “alien dreadnought” or the “machine that builds the machine.” The video of Giga Shanghai shows an incredible amount of automation in building the Model 3.
Giga Shanghai has been an impressive accomplishment for Tesla, going from an empty field to a factory building cars in about a year. The factory opened late last year and began delivering vehicles in January.
Giga Shanghai has reached a production rate of about 200,000 vehicles a year. The factory is also currently being expanded to also build the Model Y crossover SUV.
Tesla is currently building two new factories in Berlin, Germany and Austin, Texas.
