Tesla's mission is to accelerate the transition of the world to sustainable energy. Tesla Model 3 is mainly designed for the mass market so many people can get an efficient, economical, clean, and affordable vehicles. But Tesla did not stop at one affordable model, so Model Y was introduced.
At the moment, Model Y vehicles are manufactured only at the company's factory in Fremont, California. Since the compact SUV is the fastest growing in the market, as a model that will be especially popular due to its affordability, Tesla needs to increase production capacity.
At the end of February, 2020, Tesla had filed a permit application for a new assembly line in its Fremont factory.
The photos Tesmanian received from our reader shows that near the tent for the assembly of Model 3, a new assembly line (GA4.5) is being built. At the moment, we see that the construction of the tent is nearing completion, which means that Tesla will soon be able to produce a large quantity of Model Y.
The pictures above was provided by our reader on July 10. Now we can compare other pictures from our previous article which was posted on June 29:
From the picture above (June 29) we can clearly confirm the GA4.5 was already planned to be built during the end of Q2 2020. It's amazing that it only took 11 days to achieve this stage of the construction.
And now today. July 12, the latest picture shows that the GA4.5 is now very close or has already completed construction.
The new assembly line will help to increase the production efficiency of the Tesla Fremont factory, which will benefit the Model Y Q3 delivery numbers.
At the same time, there are a lot of containers near the tents (GA4 & GA4.5) where Model 3 & Y(coming) are assembled, which means that there will be no slowdown in production at the beginning of Q3. This information hints that the California company is strengthening its position and we are looking forward to see another impressive quarter, Q3 2020.
