Today Tesla China published a new video showing the inside of the plant. The robots are continually producing superior quality new vehicles to meet the needs of their customers and the strong demand for the Shanghai-made Model 3.

Most of us perceive Tesla as a company that makes cars and great software for them. But Tesla also manufactures energy storage and solar-related products. Behind the scenes, Tesla is working on its own batteries, which soon are likely to enter production. With the spotlight on its premium vehicles and software, though, one might forget about Tesla's largest and most complex product: The Gigafactory.
Giga Shanghai began production in less than a year after the start of construction. This is an unprecedented feat for the automotive industry. For example, a new Volvo plant in South Carolina took about two years to move from construction to production.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is actively developing solutions for industrial automation. He acknowledges that intelligent automation--to reduce costs and increase efficiency--requires new approaches and a constantly revised, forward-looking vision for an automated future. This is why Tesla's factories are so different from, and superior to, those of other automakers.
