Tesla Gigafactory 3 in China will look like this when it’s completed


Tesla has given us a first look at what Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai will look like when it’s finished this year. The reveal came Thursday evening when the electrical carmaker hosted an event to unveil its next cheap, mass-market 7-seater.

CEO Elon Musk spoke briefly on the rapid progress previously made on the firm ’s present Gigafactory 1 in Sparks, Nevada before transitioning to the mill construction project currently underway in China.

“This is what it’ll look like at the end of the year,” Must touted. “Things are moving quickly …Once it’s finish, it’ll be the equivalent of our Fremont car mill plus our Nevada Gigafactory combined, integrating both, which kind of makes sense. ”

The image of a long, white-colored construction with red-Tesla accents, and depicted with many semi-trucks anticipating cargo, is reminiscent of its Nevada centre. More importantly, it gives us a great glimpse of what Tesla expects to have completed less than a year after its January 6 ground breaking event.

A Chinese government official recently said that Tesla’s Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai is expected to finish the first phase of construction this coming May, with assembly lines on track to be put up by the end of the year. This interval meets Musk’s previous estimates for the job ’s conclusion, which would imply Tesla Model 3 production by the end of the year. While competitive, Gigafactory 3’s construction schedule comes with ample support from both the national and local Chinese governments.

Once finished, the newest Tesla mill site located at the Lingang Industrial Zone will be 864,885-square meters on a plot of land reported to be 9.3 million square feet. Once finished, Gigafactory 3 is expected to produce 500,000 vehicles each year, allowing Tesla to fully tap into the rapidly expanding electric car market in China as a local manufacturer.
