A new video has appeared on YouTube showing that the factory is coming along great with lots of activity on site. Musk recently said that Tesla Motors plans to manufacture 100 Model 3 vehicles in August, and above 1,500 in September. By the end of the year, they should reach 20,000 cars per month. This is where the Gigafactory comes in.

The Gigafactory will be more than five million square feet (including several floors) once it's completed, and it will be capable of producing more battery cells than any other lithium ion battery factory in the world, Musk has said.

Earlier this year, Elon Musk revealed that he has plans for probably four more Gigafactories this year. One of the four new locations is expected to be China. Another planned location is in Europe, although we could see as many as two Gigafactories in Europe. It is also expected that Musk plans to build another Gigafactory in the United States.
