Tesla’s new $3.6 billion Nevada investment includes a “high-volume” semi-factory

Tesla is investing more than $3.6 billion in its Gigafactory in Reno, Nevada, and plans to use part of the money to build its “first large-scale semi-factory.” a blog post published Tuesday.

The company officially delivered the first of its long-delayed electric semi-trucks to PepsiCo in December, but it looks like Tesla is poised to significantly expand production of the new vehicle. However, Tesla’s blog post doesn’t specify how many trucks the plant could make on a regular basis or when it’s expected to open, so it may take a while for that high volume to kick in.

In addition to the Semi factory, Tesla wants to use the investment in Nevada to build a 100 GWh 4680 battery cell factory, which the company says will have “the capacity to produce enough batteries for 2 million light-duty vehicles per year,” as well as 3,000 batteries. add. new employees in the branch. For context, the company says the Gigafactory currently produces more than 37 GWh of batteries per year, enough for about 500,000 vehicles.
