Also : what can you tell us about the Tesla Factory 2.0 tent facility currently under construction in Fremont? When will it be online? What will it produce? Why build a factory in a tent rather than conventional facility? Thanks.

Needed another general assembly line to reach 5k/week Model 3 production. A new building was impossible, so we built a giant tent in 2 weeks. Tesla team kfa!! Gah, love them so much ♥️🚘💫

They also poured the concrete & built the whole assembly line using scrap we had in warehouses. And it’s way better than the other GA line that cost hundreds of millions!

Will this technique be repeated or is it a temporary solution to get to 5k. Also, is this set up like the new line from Germany?

Not sure we actually need a building. This tent is pretty sweet. Tesla Grohmann line is in place at Giga & spooling up now. They super kicked ass too. Heiliger Strohsack!

So when will the Tesla Factory 2.0 be online? Will the tent facility be replaced by a conventional facility?

It gets hot in the summer in Fremont CA...production manufacturing equipment needs good climate controls...at least some of it does, also sounds terrible for employees that have to work in there.

It’s actually way better than the factory building. More comfortable & a great view of the mountains.

I’m at the factory a lot. Pretty good workout just walking around. It’s big.

To be clear, there are no plans to further the proposed 500,000 square foot multi story “Factory 2.0,” presumably to replace the tent?
