Tesla took to it social media channels to showcase its Megapack factory in Lathrop, California.

The video shared on Twitter and YouTube shows various parts of the production line as the facility starts ramping up towards peak production.

The video showcases the Megapack 2 XL as the next generation of batteries offered by Tesla Energy. Drive Tesla was first to report exclusively on this new version of the Megapack in January last year. The system includes integrated power electronics and thermal systems that ensure the battery runs at high efficiency in all environments.

The Megapack 2 XL is designed for scaling and uses the same core thermal components used on Tesla vehicles to keep costs down.

In addition, the video highlights that the factory can produce a Megapack every 68 minutes or 10,000 Megapack units per year. However, as noted in the comments, the number is probably closer to 7,000 per year with required downtime.

Elon Musk also chimed in, highlighting that the Megapack 2 XL is Manufactured in California.

Tesla currently has two different Megapack factories up and running. This latest factory in Lathrop, California, is still ramping up, and Giga Nevada continues to pump out Megapacks to a growing waitlist.
