Tesla Video Of Battery Cell Production At Gigafactory

Those wanting to take a look at the newly started battery cell production at the Tesla + Panasonic Gigafactory in Nevada can now do so … to some degree. Tesla has posted a short video teasing the beginning of cell mass production there.

Without dragging this out too much, here’s the video that Tesla posted:

The video was published to Facebook following the company’s big announcement concerning the state of work at the Gigafactory. For more on that, see: Tesla Gigafactory Now Pumping Out Battery Cells.

So, what exactly are we seeing in the video? Hundreds of lithium-ion battery cells working their way through a highly automated and fast production system. Tesla designed and is producing the cells in collaboration with Panasonic. The current batch is for Tesla Powerwall 2 and Tesla Powerpack 2.

The recent announcement by Tesla included the statement that battery cell production for the Model 3 is expected to begin in Quarter 2, seemingly meaning that production plans for the Model 3 are still on track. We’ll keep you posted if things change as the Model 3 launch gets closer.
