Breaking news 24th Jan 2023. Tesla plans $3.6 B Nevada Expansion to Make Semi Trucks and Battery Cells.

Extract: "Jan 24 (Reuters) - Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) said on Tuesday it would invest more than $3.6 billion to expand its Nevada Gigafactory complex with two new factories, one to mass produce its long-delayed Semi electric truck and the other to make its new 4680 battery cell.

The cell plant would be able to make enough batteries for 2 million light-duty vehicles annually, including batteries using the 4680-type cell. The 4680 is key to Tesla meeting a goal of halving battery costs and ramping up battery production nearly 100-fold by 2030."

Does that mean the the Semi will be using the 4680 battery cells? What about other vehicles? Is there a confirmed list of Tesla vehicles that will be using the 4680 cells?

Sounds like the will just complete the Ruby shape.

Like Austin, the Battery 'factory' will be in the corner.

I guess this is the product.
