Dozens of new Tesla Model 3 and Y vehicles indicate positively busy Gigafactory Texas

In a new drone from Jeff Roberts, we can see dozens of likely new Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y vehicles parked at the new Tesla Gigafactory Texas, which is seemingly ‘buzzing' with activity.

Update: It appears that the nine vehicles might have been newly produced cars. The other vehicles that showed up in today's video are most likely employee vehicles.

In the description of the video, Roberts says:

“So much action at the site today, I didn't know where to go first! Lots of deliveries going into the battery assembly section, conduit going in at the South end parking lot where production cars will be staged/charged for transport and a whole lot more!”

The Tesla and Y vehicles are clearly visible from 3:13 onwards in the 4K drone video.

When you compare the footage with the aerial photo we shared earlier today, it becomes clear that the activity at the new Tesla plant is high. Seemingly all of the cars we first showed have been moved and new Tesla vehicles are parked in their place.

All the Tesla Model 3 and Y cars seem to be plugged into the chargers.

For comparison, here are the screenshots from a video that was taken on January 17th, showing what seems to be nine shiny new Tesla Model Y vehicles.

The dozens of likely new Tesla Model 3 and Y vehicles are a strong indication that production at the new Tesla Gigafactory Texas has indeed started. This is supported by the overall level of activity that is shown in Roberts' 15-minute drone video.
