News on January 5, according to foreign media reports, venture capital firm LoupVentures analysts Gene Munster (Gene Munster) and David Stokman (David Stokman) said that the electric car manufacturer Tesla is located in Germany.
Gigafactories in Texas and Berlin may be the key to meeting the growing demand for electric vehicles in 2021.
Currently, Tesla is building a super factory in Austin, Texas. This factory will be Tesla’s fifth factory after the Nevada Super Factory, the New York Super Factory, the Shanghai Super Factory, and the Berlin Super Factory. The fourth car assembly plant after the Monte, Shanghai and Berlin plants.
Musk said that in addition to producing its first electric pickup Cybertruck and Semi electric semi-trailer trucks, the plant will also produce Model Y crossovers for customers on the east coast. It is reported that after the completion of construction, Tesla will first produce Model Y in this factory.
Tesla’s Berlin Gigafactory is the company’s fourth Gigafactory. The other three are the Shanghai Gigafactory, the Gigafactory in Nevada, and the Gigafactory in Buffalo, New York.
Musk once revealed on Twitter that the plant will be used to produce batteries, power systems, and complete vehicles (starting with the production of ModelY).
Foreign media said that this year, Tesla’s Texas Gigafactory and Berlin Gigafactory are expected to complete their initial construction and start car production activities.
Last Saturday, Tesla’s delivery data showed that in the fourth quarter of 2020, the company delivered only 181,300 vehicles, exceeding the company’s record high of 139,300 vehicles in the third quarter of 2020.
In addition, delivery data shows that in 2020, the company has delivered a total of 499,550 vehicles, a significant increase from the previous year, but failed to achieve the goal of delivering 500,000 vehicles in 2020.
Loup Ventures believes that Tesla’s fourth-quarter 2020 car delivery report shows that market demand for the company’s new energy electric vehicles is rapidly increasing.
In order to meet the increasing demand, the construction of Tesla’s Texas and Berlin super factories will be crucial in 2021.
