First photos of Tesla Gigafactory from inside appear on Instagram
Elon Musk is building a huge factory outside Sparks in Nevada and it is of colossal proportions. When complete Tesla Gigafactory 1 is going to be the world’s second largest building by volume. To give you an idea of its size, just imagine a building three times the size of New York’s Central Park that is how huge it is. The building site is restricted and trespassing attempts have been dealt with extreme measures as a Reno photojournalist got himself arrested for trespassing back in October. However, Tesla has allowed commercial photographer James Lipman to click some of the first ever photographs of the property.
As expected, the so far complete Tesla Gigafactory 1 is plush from inside and of huge proportions. Apparently, it is also going to be the largest lithium-ion battery factory in the world with an area spanning across 5.5m sq. ft. If everything goes to plan, the factory is going to have 13.6 million square feet of floor space in total by 2020.
James Lipman posted these photographs on his Instagram account and obviously they are getting a huge influx of audience. Most probably Tesla Motors now want to give a sneak peak of the Tesla Gigafactory to keep the interest going.
