Tesla Gigafactory in Shanghai is one of the most advanced and automated factories in the world. The factory is fully automated, with robots handling all aspects of production from start to finish. This allows Tesla to manufacture its vehicles at a much lower cost than traditional automakers.
The Gigafactory is also home to the Tesla Advanced Automation Group, which is responsible for developing and implementing the company's cutting-edge manufacturing technologies. The group's goal is to make Tesla's factory the most efficient and productive in the world.

One of the main features of Tesla Gigafactory is the use of robots. Tesla has deployed more than 1,000 robots at the factory, which are used for tasks such as welding, painting and assembling cars. The robots are highly precise and can work around the clock, allowing Tesla to increase its production capacity.
The Gigafactory is also equipped with advanced manufacturing equipment, such as 3D printers and laser cutters. This allowed Tesla to quickly prototype and move on to new vehicle designs.
