Once Tesla figures out all the initial road bumps with the first line in Austin, they should add another there. I think it would be a mistake if Tesla isn't shooting for the 500k capacity out of Austin. Without a doubt the North American make could soak up that capacity. If demand falls short of that (which is a longshot) they could add an international market. Unlike Fremont, Austin is not very close to a port. They would have to ship out of Houston. This makes me think that Scandinavian countries could see limited allocations before Australia.Yes, initially reservations were open globally, and I have one. Currently they are not. They closed them down internationally but it was quite some time after the launch (a year or so after), so it’s unclear how to read that.
If they came out and said openly that international isn’t happening, then of course I could grab my 100 moneys back What does give a glimmer of hope is that Tesla generally has not done the regional play and has had all cars available globally once production gets going.
Can Tesla make China a cybertruck market? If so, maybe we see the next production line there. Tesla has a pretty well established Model 3/Y market and charging infrastructure there along with South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Australia/New Zealand. If 250k is the base capacity of a production line, could these countries support that supply out of China? That's the only way I see cybertruck going to the Far East/Australian markets.
