Tesla may be covertly leading a revolution in the way electric cars

are made in its gigafactories and workshops.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has always supported "unboxed" production

which involves creating sizable sub-units of a car and then connecting the modules.

Long before other manufacturers considered it, the EV company was "gigacasting"

a few large parts instead of hundreds of small ones using ultra-high pressure presses.

by using massive presses with 6,000 to 9,000 tons of clamping pressure to mold.
