On yesterday's Tesla earnings call Musk mentioned possibility of future factories being called Terafactory...

Following Musk’s comments, Kirkhorn added that Tesla’s Gigafactories are getting larger. This is a notable observation, and it is definitely evident as seen in the company’s current projects. Plans for Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai show that the completed facility will be incredibly large, and Gigafactory 4 in Berlin is poised to be even bigger. Based on the CFO’s comments, it appears that the next factory in the US, which is possibly intended for the production of the Cybertruck, will be Tesla’s largest facility yet.

With this in mind, Musk stated that the upcoming facility might be so large, it would probably need to be called the “Terafactory” instead. “It could arguably — it could start being called ‘Tera,'” Musk said. This suggests that the upcoming facility will be absolutely massive, since the “tera” in its name would likely refer to the utilization or production of batteries with terawatt-hours of storage capacity per year. That’s a pretty insane number, though it is something that seems to be in line with Tesla’s overall goal of accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

A new “Terafactory” for Tesla would actually make sense for the Cybertruck’s production facility. Tesla is yet to announce the battery specs of its monster pickup, though its massive size and weight suggests that it will require a large battery pack to run. Apart from this, the facility could also be the possible production site for the Tesla Semi, another vehicle that will also require a massive battery pack. If speculations prove right and Tesla’s next factory will indeed be allotted for the Cybertruck and the Semi, then its “Terafactory” moniker will definitely be well-justified.

question even if he announces a new location in May with construction times and testing it probably will not be ready to produce vehicles until mid 2022. is that a true timeline? if it is then we will not see the CyberTruck until probably Mid to late 2022?

Elon said that the target was late 2021. There was a month delay for COVID-19 but that didn't necessarily delay the Cybertruck factory selection. So, it would seem they are still on target.

Plus Elon mentioned he wants to build the CT ASAP as he is very passionate about the vehicle.

The ongoing California shuttering of the Tremont assembly line will not help Elon’s proposed timeline. Positive cash flow is what funds manufacturing expansion at times when elderly at risk populations for the Covid19 virus are conserving cash and hoarding bathroom tissue. I’m not exactly a young rooster but staying active and productive or employed while awake is important to me. There is plenty of time to rest and sleep and worry in a 168 hour week, even for people who build and make things in industry friendly states.

Thanks , AZJohn

We’ve got three of them . That’s why we need a Cybertruck or Cybervan.
