Some spy shots from inside the China Gigafactory 3 have surfaced. Shows a few Model 3 body in whites on assembly lines. I don't think pilot production has started yet, likely parts shipped from Fremont to test out assembly lines before the real deal starts. Credit to https://weibo.com/1859521444/I41PMqMcc

I still think this factory is more amazing than the cars themselves. The efficiency and speed with which they built it is mind boggling.

I recently mentioned in an afternoon staff meeting that I was considering driving down to Fremont to see the factory and was met by many co-workers look of 'wtf would you want to do that for?', except the one guy that used to work for BMW and the two of us proceeded to talk about US buyers being able to take delivery of their Euro made BMWs in Europe tour the factory, use the track, etc. he got it ;)

I thought "Giga" Factories were for Battery Packs and the "Motor Electronics / Inverters / BSM module etc." But not the car themselves.

That's how it was described originally.
But I believe Elon has been talking about future gigafactories building entire vehicles for a couple years now.
