Tesla $25,000 Car - Multiple Reports - Pilot Line Is In Giga Texas - Giga Mexico Construction On Site Begins

The Tesla compact car, though overshadowed by the Cybertruck right now, will be the most talked about product Tesla is building next year. There is a pilot line in Giga Texas as well as construction underway in Giga Mexico.


Tesla $25,000 Car - Pilot Line in Giga Texas

There are a flood of reports coming in for the Tesla $25,000 car - also known as the compact car, and the first one is that the pilot line is in Giga Texas.

Giga Texas is a very important location for the compact car because it is the headquarters of Tesla. This factory should be the pioneer of this car or any other new car that Tesla is planning on building.

Elon Musk confirmed that this $25,000 car will also be built in Giga Berlin. I would assume Giga Shanghai - or a factory built near it - will also produce the vehicle.

Giga Mexico is still an important opportunity to design the process for this car and manufacture it. In fact, we've got reports of initial construction going on for Giga Mexico.

Lars Moravy and Franz von Holzhausen, along with other Tesla executives, convinced Elon Musk that the robotaxi and $25,000 EV could be built on the same platform. This means that there likely won't be two different vehicles here, and it's even possible that the steering wheel and pedals may be "plug and play".

One interesting thing to me is that Tesla executives were able to convince Elon Musk to change something. This dispels the theory that Elon is surrounded by people that are "yes people" and only agree with what he has to say.

Also, according to Walter Isaacson's Book about Elon Musk, the addressable market for the $25,000 compact car is a potentially enormous market for Tesla. By 2030, there could be 700 million of them. It's twice as big as the Model S and Model X combined.

The compact car will be a smaller, less expensive, less speedy car than the Model 3 and the focus is going to be volume. There is no amount that we could possibly build that will be enough. We want to be at 20 million a year some day.
