Tesla has released a 2 min 57 secs drone video clip of Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg which shows the outside and inside of the Model Y factory building. This amazing drone footage is shot with a small drone camera in a single flying session — got to admire the skills of the drone pilot (video below).
The US-based electric automaker received the final approval from the Berlin-Brandenburg government to start production at the factory earlier this month. After meeting all the compliance requirements, Giga Berlin has been producing Model Y mid-size electric SUVs for about two weeks now.
On 22nd Mar 2022, Tesla held a grand ceremony at Giga Berlin to hand over the first 30 Model Y Performance cars to lucky owners. Tesla CEO Elon Musk was present at this mega event and handed over the first Model Y to the customer himself. He also addressed Giga Berlin employees on this occasion and held a live Q & A session with them.
The Model Y production building is one of several buildings that make up the entire Tesla Gigafactory Berlin. The 4680 cell production building is a separate facility in Grünheide that has also received the final approval but cell production has not yet begun.
There will be several more buildings built at Giga Berlin in the future as the automaker starts building other cars in Germany — especially the compact electric hatchback that has been pending for years now.
This amazing piece of video footage of Giga Berlin starts outside the factory where hundreds if not thousands of Made in Germany (MIG) Model Y cars are parked and ready to embark on customer deliveries. Tesla has already started delivering Model Ys to other countries in Europe.
The truly interesting shots come when we see the giant stamping presses making the doors and other parts of the car. The IDRA 6,000 ton casting machine can be seen making the Model Y front and rear single-piece underbody Giga Castings.
A glimpse of Elon Musk’s imagined Alien Dreadnought can also be witnessed when looking at the massive robots working on the assembly lines and other areas of the factory.
The drone also gives us a few glimpses of the world’s most advanced paint shop at Giga Berlin. The customers who have received their Giga Berlin-made Model Y have praised the production and paint quality of the vehicle.
The video finally ends when the drone comes out of Giga Berlin and shows the massivenss of the marvel of engineering from an aerial angle. Let’s watch and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
