Here are highlights from Elon Musk’s recent panel discussion in Germany. Elon indicated that Gigaberlin could reach a production of 500,000 cars per year around the end of 2022.
This would suggest a Gigaberlin production ramp of 60k-100k in 2021, 240k to 330k in 2022 and 500k in 2023.
By inference, Giga Texas is only a few months behind Giga Berlin so the production from Texas will be similar.
Elon Musk believes all education even up to the graduate and post-doctorate level can be delivered online.
Most energy will be renewable solar, wind, hydro, geothermal and nuclear. Solar and wind will need to be supported with large battery storage. Elon is fine with nuclear at sites without natural disaster risks.
Individuals will have solar, personal batteries and home charging for electric vehicles.
There will be doubling of world electricity usage and demand when all transportation goes electric.
The transition to electric planes will seriously start in about five years. There will be electric jets starting in 2025. There will be and already have some electric propeller planes.
