It’s growing, but still not nearly the size it will be upon completion.

Here is a recent look at the Tesla Gigafactory this month, recorded on August 17, 2017 by California Phantom/YT.

Tesla Gigafactory Construction Update – August 17, 2017 by California Phantom

The Tesla Gigafactory is producing battery cells and packs for Tesla Model 3 electric cars and also energy storage systems (home Powerwall and industrial Powerpack).

The size of the building today is huge, but it is still far from being complete – as of yet, still notĀ even halfway done.

We expect soon that Tesla will begin construction of new segments, as the company looks to ultimately move production north of 100 GWh in a couple years.

“Have a look at the Tesla Gigafactory construction update for August 17th, 2017. The factory is coming along great with TONS of activity. For those of you who have pre-ordered your Model 3; safe to say everything seems to be on schedule. The building is truly a sight to behold.”

Plan when completed:

  • 105 GWh of cell production (updated from 35 GWh)
  • 150 GWh pack production (updated from 50 GWh)

    I doubt you’ll see any panels on top of Gigafactory 1 until they can all be sourced from Gigafactory 2 in Buffalo.
