Certainly a high level of automation and very impressive it is too. One will notice that in this kind of video you are rarely shown the amount of human beings it takes to make the seats in a car, thats why the job is almost always contracted out.

A recording of a production line with 60+ people on it assembling seats is less visually impressive than shiny robots. looks too much like the first flickering films of Henry Fords first production lines to impress. Welding robots (loaded by hand) are used to bend and weld the frames the rest is pretty much done by hand , and I am not talking Rolls Royce here more like 500 sets a day mass production.

I remember going round the Rover production facility back in the late 90s - I stood for ages watching a robot put a windscreen into a car!
