Tesla Semi Pilot Production Line Is Coming Together

An employee leak from Tesla reports that the pilot line for the production of Tesla Semi trucks is "coming together."

A Tesla employee based at Tesla Gigafactory 1 in Nevada has indicated that the pilot production line for the Tesla Semi is under development, implying that things seem to be going well. This person tweeted last week, “New nugget: pilot line for Semi coming together….”

Clean Technica reports that this is a reliable source and that this person has provided insight on a number of factors in the past year — vehicle production line development in Fremont as the Model Y has rolled out and the use of Tesla’s Lathrop facility a bit northeast of Fremont as a parts supply facility and for vehicle casting, for example — but he has primarily provided insight on battery production. He first responded to a discussion about battery production at the Gigafactory on September 20, 2019.
