Tesla Manufacturing Websites By Mannequin Project, Capability: April 2023

Tesla, the world’s largest electrical automobile producer, formally confirmed that its potential annual output elevated to greater than 2 million electrical autos yearly (up 100,000 in comparison with the earlier quarter).

Through the first quarter of 2023, the corporate produced a document variety of 440,808 electrical automobiles (up 44 p.c year-over-year) and bought a document variety of 422,875 electrical automobiles (up 36 p.c year-over-year). It is anticipated that in 2023, Tesla will ship round 1.8 million autos. Tesla’s cumulative manufacturing exceeded 4 million items in March 2023.

On this put up, we’ll stroll via Tesla‘s EV manufacturing vegetation to see what’s new at every of the websites and what the progress is said to the Tesla Semi Class 8 all-electric truck and the Tesla Cybertruck pickup.

Tesla’s Fremont manufacturing facility has the potential to provide as much as 550,000 Mannequin 3/Mannequin Y a 12 months, and as much as 100,000 refreshed Mannequin S/Mannequin X.

In keeping with Tesla, every of its EV factories produced a document variety of autos in 2022, so additionally Fremont is operating at its peak.

In April 2023, there was a report that the corporate is constructing a brand new battery pack meeting line on the website. We do not know the main points but.

Tesla’s first gigafactory is a lithium-ion battery cell plant, which makes 2170-type cylindrical battery cells in partnership with Panasonic, in addition to different merchandise (drive items, energy electronics, power storage methods, and elements).

In early 2023, Tesla formally introduced a $3.6 billion funding on the website to provide additionally the all-new 4680-type cylindrical battery cells (100 GWh per 12 months with a possible for extra) and Tesla Semi electrical vans (probably roughly 50,000 Tesla Semi per 12 months).

The Tesla Semi’s standing is presently “Pilot manufacturing,” described additionally as restricted manufacturing by Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk. The earlier standing was “Early manufacturing” within the Q3 2022 monetary report and “In growth” within the Q2 2022 monetary report.

To this point, the corporate in all probability delivered a two-digit variety of Tesla Semi.

The Tesla Giga Shanghai plant has the potential to provide over 750,000 Mannequin 3/Mannequin Y per 12 months (no change right here). The plant stays the corporate’s export hub.

“Since our Shanghai manufacturing facility has been efficiently operating close to full capability for a number of months, we don’t anticipate significant enhance of weekly manufacturing run price. We launched gross sales in Thailand, a brand new market provided out of Shanghai. To this point, the reception has been very constructive. Giga Shanghai stays our primary export hub.”

Tesla Giga Berlin in Grünheide close to Berlin, Germany produces the Tesla Mannequin Y (powered by 2170-type cylindrical battery cells) since March 2022.

In March, the corporate introduced that the manufacturing price reached 5,000 Tesla Mannequin Y items per week. The capability is now estimated at over 350,000 yearly (in comparison with 250,000 beforehand). That is why the overall capability of all autos is now above 2 million items per 12 months.

Sooner or later sooner or later, the corporate intends to begin manufacturing of a brand new model powered by 4680-type cylindrical battery cells.

Tesla Giga Texas in Austin began manufacturing of the Tesla Mannequin Y in April 2022. This model of the Mannequin Y is supplied with 4680-type cylindrical cells and a structural battery pack.

Nevertheless, as a result of the availability of 4680-type cells is restricted, the plant later began manufacturing of the “legacy” model with 2170-type batteries and non-structural batteries.

In keeping with the corporate, the plant just lately produced 4,000 Mannequin Y (all variations) in a single week.

In December 2022, the availability of 4680-type cylindrical battery cells elevated to 1 million items per week, which is sufficient for greater than 1,000 electrical automobiles (a 3rd of the plant’s manufacturing). Tesla famous this month that the manufacturing price of the 4680-type battery cells continued to enhance sequentially in Q1 2023, with out offering particulars.

It is vital to notice that the 4680-type cylindrical battery cells are produced now additionally regionally at Giga Texas (on high of Tesla’s Kato Highway pilot facility in Fremont, California).

The Tesla Cybertruck to enter manufacturing in Texas in mid-2023. Its present standing is “Tooling”, as the corporate is producing Alpha variations for check functions. In keeping with the most recent replace, the manufacturing line for sequence manufacturing is below development.

“Tools set up for Cybertruck manufacturing at Gigafactory Texas continued in Q1 and stays on observe.”

Quantity manufacturing is predicted no sooner than 2024.

In March 2023, Tesla introduced that its sixth gigafactory plant might be in-built Santa Catarina municipality close to Monterrey (Nuevo Leon), Mexico.

The plant might be used for next-generation electrical autos – probably a mass market, inexpensive electrical automobile, with annual manufacturing counted within the hundreds of thousands per 12 months.
