Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the new Gigafactory in Texas can house a whopping 194 billion hamsters and, if placed vertically, would be taller than Dubai's Burj Khalifa. Tesla could double car production in 2022
Giga Texas is based in the capital Austin and cost the modest sum of 1 billion dollars. "We need a place where we can be really great and there's no place like Texas," Musk said. It's about the sixth major factory of Tesla, with others located in Shanghai, Berlin, New York, Nevada and Fremont, California.
Giga Texas: Cybertruck production will start from 2023. But not only
Tesla started 2022 with a bang, with the opening of two large plants, counting the Giga Berlin opened in March. This means that Tesla will be able to launch on the market about 2 million cars this year, more than double those produced in 2021.
Another novelty concerns Cybertruck. The most anticipated Tesla pickup will start production in 2023, right in the new factory in Austin. "In 2022 we focused on production growth, but 2023 will be the year of expanding the offer. The Cybertruck, the Semi and also the Roadster will arrive" The plant will also be used to produce the humanoid robot Optimus from 2023. The company's great growth and the introduction of two new and huge factories could collide with the shortage of chips and the lack of raw materials for battery construction.
