The new Austin Gigafactory has been operational for weeks. It was then announced tonight that Elon Musk and the Tesla team had cut the ribbon on its opening party. With the event going on, they revealed some of the secrets around what’s already been known and also anticipated what will happen in the future. All in all, CyberRodeo lived up to expectations.
No one could have predicted the move that Tesla made to Texas. The company had planned on opening up six gigafactories around the world. However, after having trouble finding enough space in California, they moved it to Texas. Of course, this question would come up at the opening of the gigafactory, and it did. Musk acknowledged that there was no choice but to find new space for this plant in Texas. This choice came about because “there wasn’t enough space in California, and there was nowhere better to grow than in Texas.”
In Texas, they have a Gigafacing factory that’s 1,100m long.
Tesla, the company founded by Elon Musk and a legion of engineers, is leading the world in energy innovation. They doubled their production in less than two years, creating eye-catching products that are both technologically and aesthetically pleasing. Elon Musk admitted during the press conference that Tesla wasn’t at its best when it launched; “When we started with Tesla, I optimistically thought we had a 10% chance of success.”. However, these 10% and more efforts were more than enough for the company to achieve stardom. Tesla will lead the industry for several more years to come.
When you watch a presentation before and after, large improvements in customer experience come to light. As mentioned, the Austin factory is one of the largest buildings in the world. The construction process gained an increased level of organization with no panic and less disorganization when it came down to installing new production lines with very little downtime.
Musk admitted during Cyber Rodeo that the Austin battery plant is aiming to become one of the largest in the industry. But it was not all good news. The 4680 batteries have begun production, but unfortunately, only in limited numbers.
Everyone was wondering what would happen next. Well, then Tesla Cybertruck. While it seems like it was less surprising than expected with regard to models and launches, we couldn’t miss the party. We’ve seen how it’s changed quite a bit since we first saw her and this one’s close to being a reality. It includes perfect mirrors, with a release date in 2019 or 2020. Of course, the party ended with the usual fireworks and applause from thousands of those present.
