The Tesla Giga Texas has reached a production rate of 5,000 vehicles per week, equivalent to a Model Y capacity of approximately 250,000 vehicles.
Tesla Giga Texas reached a production rate of 3,000 Model Y units per week in December and added another 1,000 by early April of this year. In just over a month since then, Tesla has already reached a new milestone of 5,000 cars in a week and increased production capacity by 20% in a short period of time.
Tesla has yet to officially announce the news, but Tesla Lati We got a photo of the company celebrating a production milestone with a unique 5k logo featuring a Texas Longhorn with a Tesla ‘T’ engraved on it.
Tesla has planted a logo on the bonnet of the Model Y to celebrate the milestone. This is appropriate as it is the only vehicle currently produced at the facility by the automaker.
Tesla has been working hard on Model Y production both in Texas and at Giga Berlin, Germany, as well as at its Fremont plant in Northern California, where the vehicle was first produced.
Tesla’s Model Y has overtaken its sibling, the Model 3, to become Tesla’s most popular vehicle model. It quickly became not only the company’s most popular car, but one of his most popular in the world, but Tesla tried to ramp up production as much as possible to keep up with demand. .
Tesla said in its Q1 2023 shareholder filing that Model Y production at Giga Texas is close to “over 250,000 units” annually. It’s clear that the automaker is working to ramp up Model Y production even further. It’s possible that they plan to take advantage of the enormous floor space at Giga Texas and utilize a more sophisticated manufacturing process that will yield even more cars.
But the Model Y isn’t the only project Tesla has at Giga Texas. It will soon begin production of the highly anticipated Tesla Cybertruck, which has received over one million pre-orders and is expected to go into production later this year.
CEO Elon Musk has detailed that Tesla will host a dedicated delivery event at Giga Texas sometime in the third quarter. The automaker shared a rare look inside its factory on a recent earnings call, showing photos of the Cybertruck’s first prototype production line at Giga Texas.
