With recent predictions stating that Tesla’s Texas Gigafactory will almost double its previously-estimated amount of jobs, providing up to 15,000.
In a new video uploaded by automotive YouTube channel host Joe Tegtmeyer, a number of exciting progress updates are shown off in a drone video of Tesla’s Gigafactory Texas. The factory, set for completion in summer of 2021, is making excellent progress, and Sunday’s update is no different.
The new video shares a number of important updates, including some demolition prep, concrete and grout preparations, as well as new work covering up the previously-noted large pit, among other things. In addition, a mysterious operation noticed in previous videos where it appears water is spilling up to the surface of the site’s GeoPier has been understood, showing more closely that grout is being used to fill up the holes before an impactor takes to the ground to flatten its surface.
Upon the completion of the Tesla Gigafactory Texas site, the company also plans to begin delivering its long-awaited Cybertruck, for which they will release updates later this month, according to prior statements by the company and CEO Elon Musk.
