The high-performance cylindrical "2170 Cell Monomer" is designed and manufactured by Tesla in conjunction with Panasonic to provide optimum performance for electric vehicles and energy products at the lowest production cost with optimized form factors.
In 2016 December, 2170 battery monomer began trial production. Today, battery cells are being mass-produced and will be used in Tesla Powerwall 2 and Powerpack 2 energy products. In the second quarter of 2017, Model 3 cells will begin production. By 2018, the super-factory will produce 35 gigawatt-hour lithium-ion battery, close to the world the sum of all the other lifepo4 battery pack production.
Thanks to the phased construction of the super-factory, Tesla, Panasonic and other partners can begin production immediately in the finished area of the plant and then continue to expand. Through a phased approach, we can continue to learn and continually improve the construction and operation of our technology while continuing to reduce energy storage costs. The current construction area of 1.9 million square feet, a total of 4.9 million square feet of the total number of operating space. And now the degree of completion is less than 30% of the total area. Once completed, we expect the super-factory will become the world's largest building.
With the super-plant production and production speed, increasing automation and process design of the increasing improvement in production costs per watt lower input, most of the manufacturing process to focus on simple optimization of production results, the economies of scale, Our battery monomer costs can be significantly reduced. By reducing the cost of batteries, we can make the product more popular to more and more customers, with the greatest influence to promote the world to sustainable energy transformation.
Finally, by producing battery cells in the United States, we can create tens of thousands of jobs. Only 2017, Tesla and Panasonic will employ thousands of local employees, super factories in the production season will be directly employed about 6,500 employees, and in the surrounding areas to create an indirect 20,000 to 30,000 jobs.
