Elon Musk’s Cyber Rodeo at the brand new Giga Texas factory was a massive celebration of Tesla’s past, present and future, with Elon using this opportunity to acknowledge the hard work his team put in to the company in front of thousands of eager Tesla fans.
And then he laid out his vision of where Tesla would go in the future, Elon made it very clear that we’re still in the early days of a company that will change the whole world as we know it. Dre in an original black Tesla Roadster and with Snoop Dogg blasting over the speakers and then he looked like some kind of bizarre multiverse version of Johnny Cash wearing a black cowboy hat and goggles.
We knew this was going to be an interesting thing so of course the star factory of the whole show was Giga Texas, it was the start of the night what Elon called the most advanced car factory Prithvi has ever seen certainly bold statement But just look at this point it has the streamlined minimalism of an apple store.
In addition to what feels like alien robot building technology and enough floor space to fit 194 billion hamsters inside, she sheds light on the vague facts about how big the space is, Elon has taken on the long-running mission. Reiterated the statement Gigafactory It is the machine that manufactures the machine is the factory product because prototyping requires imagination and creativity.
They’re a relatively easy part of the process compared to manufacturing production, the hard part being Elon. We can think of Giga Texas like computers. The chip is specifically the kind that allows your smartphone to power up a system on a chip, Elon said. Gives power to an integrated circuit with everything in one package.
He broke the process down in its simplest form that raw material goes to one side some stuff happens the car comes to the other no one ever claimed Elon was a great speaker Now Giga Texas Tesla is realizing the things he said Was that they would return in the fall of 2020. Front and rear casting with a structural battery pack where the cells carry the vehicle’s load.
This results in a car that is lighter with a smaller number of parts, lower cost of manufacture and higher accident protection. Performance Elon says that over time Giga Texas will be the largest battery cell manufacturing factory in the world and Tesla’s 4680 is the world’s most advanced cell.
Giga Texas also has the largest casting machine ever, which Elon says it had approached six of the largest companies. In the business of manufacturing casting machines and proposing his idea of making three-piece vehicle frames, he says five said no and one said it was probably an Idra group and worked closely with Tesla to make the casting work much easier.
Car manufacturing is a true revolution in vehicle manufacturing. When we talk about vehicles here we are specifically talking about the Tesla model. This is the job number one for Giga Texas to drive the Model Y to new heights of volume production. To carry on, Elon says Tesla aims to get Model Y production to half a million units per year in Giga Texas, making it the highest-capacity vehicle production line.
He further believes that the Giga Texas will become the largest car factory in the US, even though Elon declined to give us any direct details about the new Model Y at the Giga Texas.
We can however gather some information for ourselves so we have confirmation that a new version of the model is being built at Giga Texas which is a standard range dual motor all-wheel drive with 4680 cells, we know it Because the Tesla Raj and Holmer catalog from Twitter just moved to one of the cars on F.
The factory floor looks like they own the thing and starts peeking around at the display screen hence the name of the car Model y Standard Dual Motor, it has an Austin Vin number indicating it was made in that factory And they found it with a range of 53 miles, or 19 battery charges that would work out to a total range of about 265 miles on a full charge.
We don’t know if all models from Giga Texas to date have this spec, but we do know that at least some of them we do too. Some on how the new structural battery pack design is manufactured in the factory. Interestingly, the interior of the pack has four main rows of cells running from front to back and large cooling channels in between the rows.
There are six cells in each row. In this particular cross section that was on display, we can also see a ready-made version of the pack that is ready to go in the car, with the carpet seats and center console all attached, even a video which shows how the final assembly of the body works.
It is basically like two halves coming together a top and bottom Bottom is structural pack with interior, suspension and brakes all attached and top is two gig casting with upper frame and all painted body panels attached and packed With the lower half raised just to meet the body.
And it’s also Elon Musk in Bolt about his vision for Tesla’s future, he didn’t give any super crazy details but he did give us a pretty good idea of what to expect in the next few years, a big There was a huge amount of signal free space that still remains at GHz Texas apart from the Model Y production line.
Much of the factory is just an endless void waiting to be filled with new machines that build new machines Cybertruck is a big one that came up often Elon is still pretty much dead set that Cybertruck production next year at Giga Texas Elon would not give any details on the vehicle but he did say that it will be Tesla’s Magnum Opus Cyber truck that will blow our minds.
We got some really detailed close-up views of the latest Cyber Truck prototypes that were on display but we can pretty easily see that it’s nowhere near a finished product as it’s still pretty rough around the edges and they’ve blown over the window. Oddly joked about throwing the steel ball again.
But I guess I finally decided not to reinforce the idea that this is definitely not a finished P. The beta version of full self-driving will be rolled out to all paying customers in North America by the end of this year. Even if you can’t manage to lower the security score.
Just wait the beta will come finally this software would be 10 times safer if you were driving the car yourself and it will be the kind of software that changes the world the kind of innovations that seldom do in that regard Coming to this, Elon also dropped a teaser that the next new product to be released from Tesla will be a dedicated robotaxi vehicle.
He didn’t say what it would be or when it would happen, but Elon promised it would look quite futuristic and then the Tesla bot Elon is still optimistic that a version of Elon will actually be a humanoid robot before the end of next year. Believe that this robot can change the world to an even greater extent than Tesla vehicles.
It could rewrite the definition of economy and lead to a new era of abundance. O melodramatic or whatever, but it sounds great and it’s all going to be possible as Tesla has grown its operations substantially over the course of the year and Giga Texas is playing a major role in that achievement.
Tesla is growing at the fastest pace of any major manufacturing company in the history of the world, says Elon, but they still account for only one percent of all cars sold worldwide, says Elon, adding that the target is the long-term global vehicle market. to reach about 20 percent.
So there is still a long way to go. That’s why scale matters to make a big difference. Tesla has to make a lot of cars and there’s no other way.
