Tesla Gigafactory Expansion Caught by Drone (Video)


An updated 4k drone video shot by “Above Reno” captures what appears to be more Gigafactory expansions underway.

With nearly 300,000 reservations placed on the Model 3, and the company’s plan to produce roughly 500,000 cars per year in 2020, Tesla’s 5.5 million square foot Gigafactory 1 outside of Sparks, Nevada will require today’s entire worldwide production of lithium ion batteries. Gigafactory 1 will begin production of battery cells by 2017 to coincide with the first production of the Model 3. The success of the Model 3 and Tesla’s future hinges on the success of the Gigafactory.

Local real estate professional to Sparks, Nevada, and owner of RST Homes, Candy Noel shares with us their latest ultra high definition drone video shot in 4k, this time under a commercial drone license meeting FAA requirements.

Seen in the video is the near completion of the Gigafactory structure minus solar panels that will eventually make its way onto the pristine rooftop. But as the drone camera continues to fly over the length of the massive battery factory, one can witness the expansion taking place on the far end of the plant.

Check out the stunning new video of the Gigafactory below.
