Tesla has reached an impressive milestone in its joint venture with Panasonic at Giga Nevada: the manufacturer celebrated the production of the 1,000,000th battery pack.
Tesla's mission is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy through increasingly affordable electric vehicles and energy products. In 2013, to achieve its ambitious plans and put at least 500,000 electric vehicles on the road, the manufacturer needed all the battery cells that were available in the world that year. That is why Tesla had the idea to build its own factory together with Panasonic for the production of batteries, which would power its cars. The company broke ground on Giga Nevada in June 2014, then its fascinating story began. The grand opening took place in mid-2016.
Since then, the history of Giga Nevada has been very eventful. Today it was revealed that the factory has reached an impressive new milestone and produced its 1,000,000th battery pack. This means that battery packs from Giga Nevada alone will soon power 1,000,000 vehicles, making achieving Tesla's mission even more real. Reddit user u/Broke3 shared a photo taken at the factory showing the 1,000,000th battery pack, the signatures of the plant's employees, and a plaque stating the glorious achievement.
Giga Nevada continues to ramp up the production of battery cells and battery packs respectively. Panasonic was preparing to commission a new production line there in August, according to its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2022. The new line is the fourteenth line of the plant and should increase its capacity by about 10%. This also means that we will soon be celebrating exciting new achievements.
