Media Tour: Inside Tesla’s Gigafactory Shanghai and Model Y Production [VIDEO]
Yesterday we shared some images from Chinese media publication PC Auto, as the latter was given exclusive access inside Tesla’s Gigafactory in Shanghai, getting a behind-the-scenes look at the Model Y assembly line.
Now, we have a 15-minute video of the tour (it’s in Mandarin), shared by @JayinShanghai.
The takeaway: Tesla’s Model Y team is able to produce the compact crossover SUV in just two minutes, apparently. We see everything along the neat and clean assembly line, and even a peek into where Tesla workers eat their meals. It’s very fascinating and is a smart play by Tesla to show Chinese consumers just how the Model Y is made there.
The video basically dispels a previous hit piece in China that pegged Tesla’s Gigafactory in Shanghai as having arduous working conditions.
