Tesla already has its Gigafactory in Nevada, apart from new ones in Germany and China, but last year it acquired 2,000-acres to build a factory in Austin, Texas. This facility was originally planned for the Cybertruck which is going on sale in 2021, however, then Tesla even expanded its use for the Model Y which was launched in 2020. Now reports have emerged that construction for the site is being amped up again with a giant building in the works and new job posting.
The Gigafactory Texas is scheduled to have its first phase completed by May 2021 and the production is supposed to start after that. A video has emerged which shows Tesla has ramping up construction and is building its first structure which is quite mega.
"Looking for great manufacturing engineering talent in Austin. The fantastic team already on the ground. Apply online," said Jerome Guillen, Tesla's President for automative in a Linkedin post.
