During the first week of January 2017, Tesla Motors began production of its new 2170-series battery cells for the Tesla Energy PowerWall.

The company also released a video of the battery cell production line in action:

“Published on Jan 5, 2017 by Tesla Garage:
‘…the exit rate of cells will be faster than bullets from a machine gun.’ Elon Musk.

The new cell format, 21 millimeters in diameter and 70 millimeters long, provides significant improvements in energy density over the more traditional 18650 cells currently being used on its fleet of vehicles.

The high performance cylindrical “2170 cell” was jointly designed and engineered by Tesla and Panasonic to offer the best performance at the lowest production cost in an optimal form factor for both electric vehicles and energy products.”
