Watch 4K Drone Video of Tesla’s 5.3 Million Square Feet Freemont Factory
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
Tesla is planning their biggest plant yet in Nevada, one that actually will be one of the world’s largest with an estimated 10 million square feet when completed, but they already have a pretty impressive facility in Fremont, California.
A previous employee of the factory, Stephen Powelson, took his Phantom 3 drone and flew across the compound and posted the video to YouTube. The best part of it, it’s in 4K and it gives those of us that already upgraded to that resolution the ability to once again see how amazing it looks. But it’s also a great flight to watch if you’re on 1080p or 1440p.
While some commenters were quick to point out that the video could get him into trouble with Tesla for legal reasons, he has the permission to post it. He has been a Tesla employee for almost five years, up until March of this year.
I’m personally not that familiar with Tesla’s Models that I can distinguish them on footage like this, but it appears that there is a little easter-egg in the video. Around time frame 1:44 you should be able to see a glimpse of what very well could be three Model X SUVs on the left of the footage. Either way, it gives a great view of what a Tesla factory looks like from above
