Tesla's Texas Factory Can Now Produce 1,000 Cars A Week

Aug. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Tesla's super factory in Austin, Texas, has reportedly reached the milestone of producing 1,000 cars a week.

The Texas super factory is Tesla's fifth factory after the Nevada super factory, the New York super factory, the Shanghai super factory and the Berlin super factory, and the fourth car assembly plant after the Fremont, Shanghai and Berlin plants, which started limited production of the Model Y at the end of 2021 and began delivering its first products in April this year.

Musk said the plant will produce the first Cybertruck electric pickup truck and Semi electric truck in addition to the Model Y.

Tesla's fourth superf actory, the Berlin Super factory, which opened on March 22, currently produces only the Model Y. The plant's weekly production reached 1,000 units for the first time in mid-June, a major milestone since it began production in March, meaning it has surpassed 4,000 units per month.

The company's third hyperplant is the Shanghai Super factory in China, which reached the milestone of producing 1,000 cars per week shortly after opening in December 2019. In the middle of this month, the plant surpassed the 1 million mark in production. This brings the total number of electric vehicles produced by Tesla to more than 3 million.
