Leonardo DiCaprio tours the Tesla Gigafactory with Elon Musk in new video


Leonardo DiCaprio and National Geographic released a new video of their upcoming documentary called ‘Before the Flood’ today. The video features DiCaprio’s visit of the Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada with Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

We reported on the Gigafactory being featured in the documentary earlier this month, but we only had the trailer at the time, now we have a full clip from inside the factory.

Musk isn’t revealing anything new in the clip, but he is bringing his talking points to DiCaprio’s and National Geographic’s audience, namely his effort to combat fossil fuel propaganda and to promote a carbon tax.

The tour of the Gigafactory appears to have been taken a few months back and only features the battery module production line and no battery cells. We still get a pretty cool look at some of the robots.

Here’s the video. The documentary will premiere on the National Geographic Channel on October 31st,
