Tesla Gigafactory Texas is Triple the Land Area of Giga Berlin

Gigafactory Berlin is being built on a 300 hectare (740 acre) plot of land. Gigafactory Shanghai is only being built 86 hectares (213 acres).

Gigafactory Shanghai is being ramped to over 500,000 vehicles per year.

A German source indicates that Tesla Giga Berlin will ramp to over 2 million vehicles a year.

Tesla’s newly announced Texas gigafactory is being built on 2100 acres. Gigafactory Texas could have three times the production of Giga Berlin. Giga Berlin is over three times the area of Gigafactory Shanghai.

  1. Women are too complex for men to understand.
    Is that politically incorrect to say? Or politically incorrect to disagree with?

    (Or too politically dangerous to interact with in any way?)

  2. So .. Alpha Zero from deep mind and Google saying they proved quantum supremacy are nothing really unique? .. Blimey that`s a high bar .. as a matter of interest what is unique?
    But I suspect we will have to disagree on this, but do remember my argument was NOT that these companies are the absolute best, merely that technology counts a lot, Tesla after all is not the exact same as these five.

    too your points

    1. Yes but as my original point said looking at Tesla as a E.V was wrong as its much more than that (please tell me what expansion plans Renault have in energy?), however Ark Invests argument is that Teslas share of the EV market could fall by half because its the EV market itself that is growing massively.
    2. Self Driving is not `cool` it would be a incredibly profitable break through, its a amazingly difficult technical problem, way way beyond E.V cars. When will it become universally acceptable? I don`t know? .. I can answer for the UK where I live here the government in officially published documents is very keen and will do all it can to speed it through .. hows your government?

    just saying

  3. Yes I think you missed my point ..
    I was not talking about those five companies in particular although how you conclude for instance Google with projects like Deep Mind and its Quantum computer research is old tech is beyond me .. all of these companies have VAST research budgets larger than most companies (and counties) much in A.I and I would indeed argue they are riding the tech change.

    However I was pointing out that Tesla (which this post is about) IS a high tech company in a way that legacy car manufactures are not, the five companies above show how the PREVIOUS tech wave came to dominate stock value NONE are legacy companies..
    The real issue (in this post) is not the five companies mention BUT Tesla v Legacy car manufactures.

    Just saying.

  4. And yet again we get Tesla being spoken of as just a E/V maker .. how far down the line are these other cars in self driving? Musk says they are close I also know every single Tesla car is gathering data towards this, Tesla have well over 95% of all real world self driving data how are the other manufactures doing.? .. How big are their clean energy ambitions/ Tesla have built a working power plant in Australia that has been a outstanding success, how big are the BMW or Fiat power plants?

    You are literally typing on a website that is trying to point out the absolutely radical speed of change, call it the singularity call it the 4th industrial revolution and YET STILL you are using old metrics to measure which companies will succeed in this new business world. You might as well have bet on Sears over amazon or Blockbusters over Netflix
    Top five companies by market cap now ARE

    1. Apple
    2. Microsoft
    3. Amazon
    4. Alphabet (Google)
    5. Ailibaba

    These are companies riding the tech changes they are NOT old companies with old mindsets. And yet because some guy in a podcast makes a observation all of a sudden legacy car manufactures are going to make these massive breakthroughs? .. Really?

  5. I challenge your remark on the grounds of political correctness .. it only gets a pass because it was funny.

  6. In English, not a human system can mean not created or owned by humans. This is clear, as nobody would think the system that conrolled prices was an actual human. So, unless you have a really good android you have made, a woman is not owned or created by man. Not a *human* woman, a natural woman

  7. too complex to understand, thus too complex to control. So, not a human system, in a way.

    By that argument, women aren’t human.

  8. Is there really a move against carbon credits? The only country I’m aware of who adopted, and then dropped*, the idea, is Australia.

    I’d be more concerned about the issue of fuel tax. Right now the governments of the world are taxing automotive fuels, but letting EVs dodge the issue because they are:
    1.. A very small % of the market, not worth worrying about
    2.. Generally owned by wealthy and politically aware people with greater than average leverage over politicians.

    As EVs become more common, these will no longer hold. Until a government desperate for money (and 2021 will have a LOT of those) works out how to charge EVs for distance and/or electricity use.
    Yet all the popular calculations of EV superiority assume they will be tax free forever.

    *. That’s “dropped” in the sense of just abandoned, not the new meaning of just introduced. A confusing new autoantonym that some idiot made up to confuse people.

  9. The point is, Tesla would have barely made a profit at all, due to R&D and other costs, if not for the income from tax credits sold to others. At some point, those credits will go away (I’m surprised pro-pollution Trump hasn’t cut them already), or be sold by others, perhaps more cheaply in a more competitive market with fewer polluters.

  10. In what way is selling carbon credits that the company has fairly earned by selling electric vehicles not an “organic earning”?
    There currently exists (for good or ill) carbon credit schemes. Given those schemes, carbon credits exist, can be earned, and then sold.
    Saying it isn’t “real” profit is like saying that earning rent on your Washington DC properties isn’t a “real” profit because people only want to live there because of government agencies employing people.
    Or saying that Ford should count millions of dollars earned selling F150 trucks in England, because people would buy them, except for government rules about high petrol taxes.

  11. And would any other company that could have a flow of essentially free income like payment for unneeded EU carbon credits NOT taken advantage of this?

  12. His stock is only privately traded, but he is making money selling a few cars, too. In Austin, the tax rebates would not come w/o the bike trail.

  13. Adam Smith proved that such a system would be too complex to understand, thus too complex to control. So, not a human system, in a way. A thought that leads one to self organized dissipative structures, the original Transcendentalism, the beginnings of modern thought and Liberty. Also, the “entire world” now includes Space, where the Nickel is.

  14. If only there was some sort of information system, a trading system of some sort, covering the entire world, whereby an increase in demand for a commodity would result in increased prices, and thereby inform producers that increased supply would be profitable.

  15. In a podcast, stock picker Louis Navellier says Tesla only made money last quarter because they sold carbon credits to other corporations, not from organic earnings from selling cars. He also said other electric car makers are now outselling Tesla in Europe. This, he says, explains why the stock dropped despite Tesla having a “surprise” profit last quarter.

  16. Musk has sent out a desperate plea for miners to *make* more Nickel. Perhaps there is some in Space?

  17. I love Elon Musk. I was on that very plot of land 3 weeks ago. If he ties into the existing hike/bike trail system in South Austin, it will truly be an ecological paradise. I can’t wait to cycle through there.

    I do have a question: How does he finance all of these huge projects? Is it strictly from stock offerings?

  18. Are you comparing the size of the building, or the size of the block of land?
    My dad had a place on 19 square km, but the building itself was barely the size of a double garage.
