With such high demand, it seems almost like a good idea to build a new U.S.-based giga-factory just for Cybertruck or any other exo-skeleton Cyber vehicles. The demand for Model Y is yet to be fulfilled, there is such a strong demand to start CT production. Thoughts?
Likely production will be 10,000-15,000/ week.Yeah but….how are they gonna move 5000 vehicles a day off premises? Look at the issues Shang hai is having. I can only guess 5 Boring tunnels filled with FSD cars operating autonomously?
I have been saying this for a year.....Tesla does not have enough factory capacity in the US.....even with GigaTexas.With such high demand, it seems almost like a good idea to build a new U.S.-based giga-factory just for Cybertruck or any other exo-skeleton Cyber vehicles.

The lead time is so long for building a factory, just getting the land assembled, site plans approved by the local government and closing on the land takes a long time. Then you need a year and a half to build the factory. So, if they start TODAY trying to do GigaTulsa? or GigaSouthCarolina? it will be 2 years before that factory comes on line.Why not wait for the Austin factory to open, get up to full time production and then determine the need? Seems cart before the horse with that proposition. If the need is there Tesla could expand the facility they already have on the 2500+ acres of property.
They are likely already considering sites for their next factory.I have been saying this for a year.....Tesla does not have enough factory capacity in the US.....even with GigaTexas.
I agree. The key is to get the Texas Giga Factory up and operating and the bugs worked out on making the castings, then you have a proven solid working plant model to rapidly move forward if the market shows the demand. I would guess that to be 3 to 6 months.They are likely already considering sites for their next factory.
They only have a certain amount of critical staffing bandwidth and liquid capital for managing projects of this scale. Starting a new factory when you don't have the people who are good at building factories in place is likely to end up with trouble.
Or... it could be a customer leaving with their Cybertruck they picked up from the factory. They could have a daily airport shuttle service, give a factory tour, then you drive away with your car. Don't even have to worry about if the paint is dry.Each vehicle could be a worker or bus... or a semi hold five Cybertrucks.
It would make more sense to build an East coast factory for the model Y.If they could produce enough cars to keep up with current demand, they could just start producing the Model Y SR again. That drops the entry price of the Model Y by $7,000 which is a pretty big jump into the affordability range.
Tesla India should focus on busses and e-bikes.According to one of the Tesla talking heads on YouTube there is not enough income in India (population yes, income no) to warrant a plant there. Average income there is $3,168.00 per year.
Giga Berlin can send cars to India.......mayhaps the 25K model we are hearing about for the more affluent Indians. .
South America is the next logical place for Tesla EV production.
I’d prefer my truck come with 5 miles on the odometer, not 1500! Texas is a long drive.FSD will eventually be the delivery system right? Look at how simple that would make it. Have the vehicle arrive at your house and wait for you to sign the delivery agreement before releasing the vehicle.
