Tesla Giga Texas is a truly impressive facility whose goal is to produce advanced electric vehicles in the fastest possible time at the lowest cost. Herbert Diess shared his appreciation for the factory as everything is under one roof and there is no need for logistics from battery cell production to final assembly.
Giga Texas is the largest Tesla factory in the world and has huge potential. It will initially produce Model Y for the eastern US, and later other vehicles such as Model 3, the iconic Cybertruck, and the segment destroyer, Semi truck. With Giga Texas' enormous size, transportation within the factory will be handled by Tesla Semi, but everything will be concentrated under one roof.
Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group Herbert Diess recently visited Austin, Texas, to join the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival for the first time. He shared his impressions on LinkedIn and, among other things, wrote about Tesla Giga Texas. Diess noted that the huge building (1.2 km long, 400 m wide) houses everything needed for car production under one roof. He notes how valuable it is that there are no logistics involved and everything from battery cell production to final assembly is in the same building. Diess understands that once Giga Texas is up and running, it will set some new benchmarks. Realizing this, he expressed his happiness that Volkswagen had decided on a new plant for Wolfsburg. "Without that—no chance to compete," wrote Diess.
