Teslas layout in the field of power batteries is still ongoing.
According to multiple media reports, Tesla has agreed to acquire atwautomation, a supplier of battery modules and battery pack assembly services for the automotive industry.

On September 25th, ATS said some of its assets and employees in Germany might be resold to third parties. ATS did not disclose who this third party was at that time.
