One of the key elements to producing the Model 3 and other Tesla vehicles will be opening in about two months. The factory was reportedly only 14% complete at the beginning of this month.

Electric car maker Tesla Motors plans to hold a "grand opening" celebration for its massive battery factory under construction outside of Reno, Nev. on the night of July 29. The company disclosed that date in an email to customers who had won tickets to the event by referring more than five other customers in Tesla’s car referral program. The email was posted to Reddit and Tesla confirmed with Fortune that a customer-focused launch event will occur that night.
