Gigatelier, the great gathering of Tesla fans

LE Gigatelier is Tesla’s biggest gathering in France since the launch of the brand. It was in a huge parking lot in a commercial area on the outskirts of Amiens that nearly 300 Teslas, all models combined, were found.

And if the choice of this place may surprise, it is for a very specific reason…! And yes, this is the new face of car rallies in the electric era, recharging participants is an element to be taken into account by the organizers. And this is the case of Cécile who came from the Paris region with her Model 3 and her little family…

You will have understood it, At the origin of this unprecedented gathering, a Youtuber – Stephane… It all starts when Stéphane buys this Model 3 in 2019, he regrets not having the opening of the electric trunk common on more traditional sedans, but discovers that it is possible to find it as an accessory on the Internet, provided you mount it yourself…

The Gigatelier is therefore the next step, going from the video platform to the real thing and, as its name suggests, taking up the DIY tutorial spirit of the Teslas… Moreover, Stef is quickly put to work, to give a helping hand on the editing that made him famous… And indeed, some like Yohann have indeed come…
If Yohann gets tangled up a few Teslas away, others have embarked on major works…

For others the modifications are lighter, but Tesla’s community spirit is there… Her name is Jess, and if she’s only had her Tesla for a few days, she’s already crazy about it…. While Jess can’t stop praising her Model 3, a contest is launched in the heart of the Gigatelier… A contest that highlights one of the unique characteristics of Tesla… A contest that you won’t be able to see on no other car rally….

Yes ! You heard it right, it’s a video game competition, one of the most amazing integrated functions of Teslas… If Gravitar, almost unplayable, will have given competitors a hard time, the star game of Teslas will offer a fierce competition between many players, even I will get caught up in the game! I set the best time, but it won’t last long… So it was Léanne who beat me, with a small advantage, she has a Tesla at home…

The contest ended we find Yohann, and surprise, he has untangled his cables and he is very proud. Nice effect, but still shy! On the personalization side, Christian has gone much further and embarked on pure tuning, surprising on an electric car…

In short, a great success this Gigatelier and it was like the Tesla, a reinvention of a classic automobile in version 2.0
