Drone Video of Tesla's Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai Shows Even More Progress
Last week we brought you a drone video by YouTuber Jason Yang showing Tesla's Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai, China nearing completion. Now, it seems Yang is dedicated to bringing us more updates.
Just a week later, you can see even more impressive progress. "Large equipments are leaving, indicating that the construction of the plant is coming to an end. After a quarter, Tesla Model 3 comes down from the production line, which will likely be achieved," reads Yang's video description.
Not sure what this means for the plant but it is definitely speedy consistent progress. Regarding the plant, Electrek has reported that Tesla has said that it “will take roughly two years” until they start volume production with a planned capacity of 200,000 units and “then another two to three years before the factory is fully ramped up to produce around 500,000 vehicles per year for Chinese customers."
