While the show was already in place since new year’s day, the Gigafactory Model Y body is on display only from today until the event’s end on the 7th of January, Sunday.

What is unique is that Tesla states its hyper-efficient production practices at the brand’s Giga Shanghai electric vehicle factory in China allows it to punch out a new Model Y body in about 40 seconds on average.

The brand’s secretive ‘Giga casting’ process essentially stamps a car body together from a few large parts, and the battery pack’s main housing can also be built directly into the vehicle’s form. The assembly system was pioneered at its American production plants and has now gone ahead to full speed in China.

The roadshow is taking place just a few days before the start of the 2024 Singapore Motorshow, of which Tesla has confirmed that it will not be a part of. So if you want to check out the brand’s EVs away from the showroom, here’s your chance.
