The Tesla building on the Erangel map update is only one of the numerous new additions that graced the 5.1 patch of the battle royale game for mobile.

'PUBG Mobile' 5.1: Tesla Gigafactory
Tesla and "PUBG Mobile's" collaboration birthed the existence of the Gigafactory in the Erangel map option. To be precise, the car factory will be seen in the Mission Ignition mode of the game.
Players will also stumble upon the Tesla Model Y while strolling around the Gigafactory. It is also interesting to note that the autopilot of the said electric vehicle was also brought to life in the game.
That said, gamers could focus on their enemies as the car drives by itself along the highways. They will only have to enable the pre-set markers to do so.
Not to mention that the map also included the random appearance of Tesla Semi trucks, adding to the electric sedan. The truck is something that players shall look forward to as firing their weapon onto it will drop the Supply Crate, packed with tons of additional loot.
