In an act to encourage people to apply to its new Cell Team for battery production, Tesla has released a video showcasing how its lithium-ion cells are made.
Shot in a Comment C’est Fait documentary style, the video shows the stages of manufacturing from raw material to packaged goods. The video also gives viewers a glimpse at some of the facility’s machinery and its level of automation.
A brief description of the team/job reads:
To achieve the transition to sustainable energy, we must produce more affordable EVs and energy storage, while building factories faster and with far less investment. The key to this is terawatt-scale battery production and far more affordable battery cells. At Tesla, we build cars and factories from the ground up. Now we do the same for batteries. Join us to solve the next generation of cell engineering, manufacturing, materials, equipment, and operations challenges ahead—all in one vertically-integrated team.
Those looking to learn more about joining the Cell Team can head over to its dedicated site.
Battery cell production is the fundamental rate-limiter slowing down a sustainable energy future. Very important problem. https://t.co/MYOUSAC2AK
