Tobias Marmann, a Tesla Recruitment Leader at Gigafactory Berlin, who posted the video of the 4680 battery cells being assembled, wrote in his post "So mesmerizing to watch. #Battery cell assembly at #Tesla. Also exciting to be working Tesla, where we are at the forefront of production innovation. Many Gigafactories and Megafactories have been announced by others (which is great!), but many are yet to be built."

The automaker is currently manufacturing4680 cells at its pilot line near the Fremont factory and at Giga Texas as well. The EV company has plans to manufacture these high-energy-density batteries at different locations across the world. One of the plants would be in China, where Tesla currently produces both Model 3 and Model Y. Doing so will boost the automaker's chance to expand its fleet of EVs with 4680 batteries.
