Tesla’s Construction Plans for Gigafactory Texas Revealed
Tesla’s construction plans for Gigafactory Texas shows a massive buildings with an interesting shape on a 2,000-acre piece of land.
The shape of the factory appears to show a very similar shape as Tesla’s original plan for Gigafactory Nevada. However, Tesla never completed Gigafactory Nevada and currently, only roughly 30% of the structure is up and standing. The plan for Gigafactory Texas also seems to show a large alley splitting the structure in two.
The latest drone flyover of the site shows that Tesla has already leveled the ground for almost the entire planned structure. Tesla is now using a Geopier system to reinforce the ground for the foundation of the factory.
As recently reported, Tesla plans to have the building ready by the end of the year with the first “substantial completion,” which means that it could start production, in May 2021. At one point, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was even referring to the factory as the “Cybertruck Gigafactory” since it’s going to be the location where Tesla will produce the electric pickup truck.
