Tesla published a new video on its Youtube channel of a Model S traveling down the assembly line at its plant in Tilburg, Netherlands. The automaker opened the new 78,000 square-meter (840,000 sq-ft) plant in the city earlier this year.

The factory performs the final assembly process and testing for the Model S’s going to certain European markets, including the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany. The plant has an indoor test-track for quality testing before the cars go out to the new owners.

Once it will achieve the planned capacity of 450 vehicles per week ,it is expected to employ 180 workers.

Tesla says that there’s room to grow at the location for when the company launch the Model X in Europe next year, which should increase the assembly rate of the Tilburg plant.
