- As per a new report, Tesla has chosen Austin, Texas as the location for its next Gigafactory.
- It is said that Tesla CEO Elon Musk is pushing for an aggressive construction timeline, and expects to have Model Y SUVs coming out of the factory by the end of 2020.
- In addition to the Model Y, this new factory will also see the production of the Tesla Cybertruck, which is scheduled to release in late 2021.
tesla was said to be in talks with several states over the construction of its next Gigafactory. This was said to be a designated production location for the Model Y and the late 2021 cybertruck which has built quite a fan following already. A new report suggests that tesla may have chosen Austin, Texas as the location for its next big factory. What’s even more surprising is that Elon Musk reportedly wants the model y SUV churning out of the factory by the end of 2020.
That’s a pretty aggressive timeline, although the source also suggests that construction on the factory may continue going into 2021 as tesla opens the unit in stages. The hope, for now, is that tesla will be bringing out the Cybertruck from this factory by the end of next year.
It’s worth noting that we haven’t received confirmation from Tesla at the moment, so we recommend you to take this revelation with a grain of salt. It is said that tesla CEO Elon Musk is eager to start construction on the Gigafactory extremely soon, so we may get to hear about this in the days to come.
This is in no way related to recent reports of tesla being willing to shift its production unit from California, which produces most of tesla’s vehicles. tesla has been in talks with states for a new Cybertruck Gigafactory for a few months now.
Tesla recently began production in its Fremont factory against Alameda County’s rules. However, it seems like the County may finally allow the unit to function after tesla received a wide range of support from the political spectrum, including the Mayor of Palo Alto and the Governor of California.
