Elon Musk opens the Tesla Gigafactory (2016.7.29) - YouTube
Factory that is on pictures is 1/7th. Might be able to see it from space station when all build. + it is much more dense. VW or Audi or BWM would have to stack their one manufacturing hall 2 other on top. So it is much more than just Wolfsburg.

SolarCity's Chairman Elon Musk annouces it will buy solar panel maker Silveo
Without decisive action to lay the groundwork today, the massive volume of affordable, high efficiency panels needed for unsubsidized solar power to outcompete fossil fuel grid power simply will not be there when it is needed,” according to the blog post penned by SolarCity Chairman Elon Musk and the two co-founders, Peter Rive and Lyndon Rive. [...] “The timing is right to make an acquisition and get into advanced solar panel manufacturing. If we don’t do this, then we thought there’s a risk of not being able to have the solar panels we need to expand the business in the long term,” Elon Musk said on the conference call. [...] In both cases, Musk’s goal is to make sure that the components critical to his vision of the future — electric cars and solar energy — are available and cheap enough to beat fossil fuels.

At a tech conference hosted by Tesla last week, Musk put things in even more stark terms: The company won't be able to function at all if it doesn't build a gigafactory — and will ultimately need hundreds of them. "We can’t figure out any other way to scale," the Wall Street Journal's Cassandra Sweet quoted Musk as saying.
