Something ‘BIG’ is coming! – Tesla’s Gigafactory

Tesla, the world renowned automobile manufacturing company has built their humongous Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada. This is where Tesla is producing its Model 3, the company’s first mass market electric car.

According to the CEO Elon Musk, Tesla aims to ramp up production of model 3 to some 20,000 units per month by December and some 10,000 units per week in 2018. But the main hurdle was to produce the electric cells for the cars. This was the reason why the new factory came into existence.

As per the drone footage posted by YouTube user California Phantom we can see how enormous the factory is and it is also evident that the work is also in full motion.

The dimension of the new factory is said to be approximately five million square feet and it is estimated to have several floors and will out throw any other lithium ion battery factory in the world in terms of production.

There hasn’t been much expansion of the main unit since December but the footage does show a much busier atmosphere.
