Tesla has confirmed that ‘the next US Gigafactory site has been selected and it will be in Texas’ in its Q2 2020 financial results. Musk called the location “GigaTexas”. Musk called Tesla’s new facility “an ecological paradise”.
It’s about 2,000 acres and we’re going to make it a factory that is going to be stunning. It’s right on the Colorado River. So we’re actually going to have a boardwalk, where there’ll be a hiking/biking trail. It’s going to basically be an ecological paradise, birds in the trees, butterflies, fish in the stream, and it’ll be open to the public as well. So not closed and only Tesla. So if anyone’s interested in working at Giga Texas with engineering, production, whatever the case may be, please let us know.
Construction of the Gigafactory already started over the past weekend. The location will be where Tesla will build Model 3 and Model Y vehicles bound for the East Coast. The 2000-acre facility will also be home to the Tesla Semi and the upcoming Cybertruck.
This is what Musk said,
We’re going to be doing a major factory there. And it’s also where we will be doing Cybertruck there, the Tesla semi, and we will be doing Model 3 and Y for the eastern half of North America.
