Tesla CyberTruck Giga Texas (Terafactory) Possible Site Location

Today, the global automotive market--especially for alternative fuel vehicles--is very competitive. Tesla expects to further grow this market in the future. The company is a leader in the field of electric vehicles and continues to widen its product offerings. To meet global demand for its products, Tesla must continue to expand its global manufacturing capacity.

The company understands that an additional manufacturing facility is required in the U.S. In particular, the products of the new plant are aimed at providing vehicles to the eastern half of the U.S, so the perfect location is in the center of the U.S.

During the Q2 2020 Earnings Call, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the company had selected Austin, Texas as the location for its next Gigafactory.

Tesla enthusiast, @DerCaspar, provided documents that indicated the location for a future factory where Model 3, Model Y, Cybertruck, and Semi will be produced.

Tesla submitted the Application to the Del Valle Independent School District on May 26, 2020.

This site is approximately 2,100 acres and located at the intersection of SH-130 and Harold Green Road.

At the time of application, the property at this address is a sand and gravel mining site owned and operated by Martin Marietta, and currently houses a fully operational concrete batch plant supporting the needs of numerous central Texas construction projects. The Martin Marietta assets will operate for a period of time but will be relocated in the future to allow for the buildout of the site. The timeline for the relocation will be determined at a later date.

According to the application, construction is proposed to commence in Q3 of 2020 pending all required approvals. The manufacturing plant will be 4-5 million square feet. Tesla wrote that the timing of the construction still needs to be determined, but it is expected that it will cover the next 2-3 years.
