Tesla is preparing a production line for its new and affordable Model from Giga Shanghai.
A Twitter user Troy Teslike has shared a segment from the plan of Tesla’s Environmental Impact Assessment for the Gigafactory in China, which literally says this: “According to the corporate plan, this time the production area has added 1,000 new employees, the new model production area has approximately 3,000 new employees, and … the new model production area has a labor force of approximately 6,000.”
Note the two appearances of the phrase “new model” and the phrase “new model production area.” This is a direct suggestion from Tesla that the EV maker has already started the work on its new affordable $25,000 model production area, hiring more people and expanding Giga Shanghai even further.
In other words, not only is Tesla on the verge of opening two completely new global production facilities – one in Texas and another in Germany – but it’s also expanding in Fremont, California, and Sparks, Nevada.
“One can only assume the new facility is for the potential $25,000 model Tesla is planning, which will be designed and produced in China for the global market. Of course, the report could be referring to another model or even a current Tesla model that’s not yet produced in China, but that’s highly unlikely,” writes Steven Loveday of Inside EVs.
