Where Will Tesla Build Its 2nd Gigafactory in Asia?
Tesla CEO Elon Musk, replying to a question on Twitter, said the company plans further expansion with a 2nd Asian Gigafactory. After the construction of Giga Berlin and the new American factory for the production of Cybertruck and Model Y is completed, Tesla plans to build a new factory in Asia outside China.
Last weekend, Musk hinted at where the next factory could end up.
When asked if Tesla plans to “expand mega factories in Asia outside China” on Twitter, the CEO answered: “Yeah, but first we need to finish Giga Berlin and a second US Giga to serve the eastern half of North America.”
While Musk confirmed that it’s in Tesla’s plans, he didn’t offer any specifics beyond ‘Asia’, but people were quick to send suggestions like Japan and Korea, who both have strong existing automotive industries.
