Last night, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and CTO JB Straubel gave a quick presentation about the Gigafactory for the ‘Grand Opening’ event. You can watch the video in full below.

Elon reaffirmed that they expect the factory’s capacity to be able to reach 150 GWh at full capacity. He gave his shtick about ‘the machines building the machines’ again, which is always interesting. His focus is really shifting to manufacturing.

In a particularly interesting part of the video, Straubel shows a CAD drawing of the entire plant to show the density of the machines that will be installed at the factory.

Here’s the presentation:
