Giga Texas leaked inside video shows Tesla Cybertruck production is going on at a steady pace



Peeking inside a Gigafactory is not an easy task by any measure, especially when a product is scheduled for a final unveil in a few months. However, we got an 8-second video clip from the Cybertruck production line at Giga Texas.

This short candid video shows us that Tesla is moving ahead at a fast pace with Cybertruck production.

This area of the Cybertruck production building looks separate from the main assembly line which Tesla showed in the company’s Q2 2023 report. It looks like an area where the Cybertruck units are placed after getting assembled.

Interestingly, the short glimpse shows that the front trunks (frunks) of all the Cybertrucks were open. This Giga Texas production area is possibly where Tesla employees work on the Cybertruck frunk components.

Usually in a Tesla EV, the front trunk is the place that holds the thermal management system (cooling and heating). Components hidden under the frunk space include the radiator, the heat pump, and also the 12-volt battery.

So, Tesla staff at Giga Texas most probably installs these electrical components in this part of the Cybertruck production area. However, in this short video clip, we did not see any human working on the trucks. It is possible that this video was recorded during break time.

Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has promised multiple times that the Cybertruck deliveries will begin this year. The automaker even shared the first-production Cybertruck celebration at Giga Texas last month.

Looking at the progress Tesla is making with Cybertruck production, the automaker received even more reservations for the unconventionally-designed electric pickup truck. It is estimated that Tesla Cybertruck reservations have now reached close to 2 million pre-orders.

Although Tesla is producing Cybertrucks in Austin, Texas — most of the testing is taking place near the company’s engineering HQ in Palo Alto and the Fremont factory in California.

Camouflaged Cybertrucks seen in Palo Alto are close-to-production alpha prototypes. These Tesla pickup truck prototypes are used for validation and calibration testing. The data fetched during these tests is used to improve the final product and tweak the software to gain the best performance and range out of the Cybertruck.

Tesla has been shipping these camouflaged Cybertruck prototypes on open truck beds between Texas and California.

But just yesterday in Austin, TX — a Tesla Cybertruck was seen loaded in an enclosed trailer. This one did not have a camouflage wrap on it. Just a glimpse of the front and wheel of the Cybertruck showed as the trailer door opened and someone snapped the photo. This Cybertruck loaded in an enclosed trail

From the looks of the wheel and tire, it seems that this Cybertruck has also been tested in the field. It does not look fresh off the assembly line. But the destination of this truck is not clear.

Simultaneously, Tesla is completing the cold-weather testing of the Cybertruck in its dedicated facility in New Zealand. One of the few regions of the world where it could have been done in the summer months. Cold weather/snow testing is crucial for the Cybertruck at this time as its deliveries will most probably start in November/December this year.

Tesla commissioned 2 IDRA 9000-ton Cybertruck Giga Casting machines at Giga Texas and the automaker is installing a 3rd one to scale Cybertruck production.
