In response to the newest information from Texas, Tesla has acquired an extra 381-acre plot, adjoining to its already big 2,100-acre Tesla Giga Austin web site.

381 acres would translate to enlargement of about 18% to a complete of two,481 acres. Some count on that it won’t be the final enlargement by the best way.

“Persevering with at full pace with improvement of its electrical automobile meeting plant in southeastern Travis County, Tesla lately bought 381 acres adjoining to its present 2,100-acre web site at Harold Inexperienced Street and Texas 130, deed information present.” – Statesman

There is no such thing as a official announcement about any new venture on the web site, but it surely’s not a thriller that having 4 EV fashions within the pipeline (Cybertruck and Semi in 2021 plus Mannequin Y and Mannequin 3 at a later level) Tesla will want lots of batteries. Particularly if Cybertruck manufacturing will actually attain 250,000+ annually.

At Tesla Battery Day, Tesla hinted at a objective of an inner battery cell manufacturing capability of 100 GWh at some point in 2022. The pilot plant in California can be at 10 GWh in late 2021. So possibly the remaining capability of 90 GWh can be put in at a brand new facility in Giga Austin? It might be far smarter than supplying cells from distant Nevada.

250,000 Cybertracks with 200 kWh packs every (only a easy guess), would require 50 GWh alone. The remaining 40 GWh may very well be for Semi, Mannequin Y/3.
