Tesla’s Gigafactory 3 in China continues to evolve by the week, with recent drone footage of the complex providing a glimpse at the remarkable progress of the activities inside and outside the electric car production facility. Based on recent videos taken of the site, it appears that Gigafactory 3’s workers are sprinting towards the factory’s completion, as the team attempts to hit the ambitious goal of starting local Model 3 production later this year.
The recent footage of the Gigafactory 3 complex was shared on YouTube by Tesla enthusiast and drone operator Jason Yang, who has been following the progress of the site since January, when the site was but an empty field with a few pile drivers. Particularly impressive in the new footage was the completion of the facility’s roofing, which now appears to be completely paved. Most areas are even overlaid with white paint, giving Gigafactory 3’s general assembly building that clean, unmistakable Tesla look.
Also notable were the doors that are now being installed in the bays lining Gigafactory 3’s sides. Semi-trailers will be loading and unloading items from these massive doors, allowing Gigafactory 3 to take and conduct deliveries in an efficient manner. A number of the facility’s windows are also being finished, as more sections of the general assembly building’s exterior are completed.
Over the course of the recent flyover, it was evident that workers in the Gigafactory 3 complex are currently working on the areas surrounding the main electric car production facility. More operating platforms have also been installed around the main plant, and other projects, such as the substation southwest of the general assembly building, continue to make progress. Based on these activities, it was evident that Tesla and its Chinese construction partner are pushing hard to complete the facility on time, or perhaps even ahead of schedule.
