When it seemed that with the construction of the plant in Berlin and Texas, Tesla would take a break in new factories, today the news has broken that the North American manufacturer is already preparing its Gigafactory 6. An installation that will arrive to continue increasing production to feed a demand that does not stop growing.
According to rumors, this new facility, which has not been confirmed by the American brand at the moment, will be located on the east coast of the United States, and its task would be to feed an internal demand in North America that is expected to skyrocket in the coming years.
The plans have been revealed by documents recently filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission form filed by Tesla, stating that Gigafactory 6 will handle the production of the Tesla Semi and the new Roadster.
In this way, Tesla’s industrial organization chart counting this installation would mean having the Fremont, California factory, which became operational in 2012, where the Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y are manufactured.
For its part, the Austin, Texas plant, which is under construction, will produce the Cybertruck and the Model Y from 2021. The Berlin factory, which will start up in 2021, will launch the Model 3 and Model Y, the same as the Shanghai facility, which has been in operation since the end of 2019.
Of course, its implementation plans are still in an initial phase, and there are no dates for its entry into action. If it receives the green light in 2021, it would have at least one year of work ahead of it to start production to talk about 2022 or 2023 at the earliest.
The date for which the North American manufacturer is estimated to have an annual production of 1 million units per year, but as we see, it seems that it is on the way to exceeding its expectations and is even preparing to reinforce them.
