The original Gigafactory 1 in Nevada is going to build the Model Y.

Gigafactory 2 assemblies Panasonic solar panels for Solar City. It was plagued by delays and is operating at a fraction of the promised volume with a fraction of the promised workers. (Solar City promised 3,000 jobs to get $750 million in public incentives but only 800 people work there.) I wouldn't hold it up as a success.

Gigafactory 3 is under construction in China. Time will tell how fast it will be build and start volume production.
