Following the Model 3 introduction, Tesla presented more than two years (in just 15 seconds) of construction of its Gigafactory that is a key element in Model 3 supply chain.

The battery factory, located at Electric Ave 1, Sparks, Nevada, produces battery cells (cylindrical 2170) and packs for the Model 3, as well as for energy storage systems (Powerwall and Powerpacks).

The facility is also engaged in Model 3 powertrain production.

The ultimate goal for the Gigafactory is:

  • 105 GWh of cell production (updated from 35 GWh)
  • 150 GWh pack production (updated from 50 GWh)
The facility was expanded in steps, section by section. Watch it spring to life in the time-lapse video.
