The footage was recorded using a DJI Phantom 3 Professional and it shows views of the construction process in Ultra HD 4K.

 

It looks like Tesla is busy finishing what is going to be world's largest building by physical area once done.

 

 

Tesla expects that Gigafactory 1 will reduce the production cost for their electric vehicle battery, Powerwall and Powerpack battery packs by 30%. Its projected capacity for 2018 is 50 GWh/yr of battery packs and its final capacity upon completion of the entire factory is 150 GWh/yr. This would enable Tesla to produce 1,500,000 cars per year.

 

Tesla's CEO Elon Musk earlier confirmed that he plans to choose a location for Gigafactory 2 in Europe next year. He also added that the factory would combine both the production of batteries and complete cars.
