They say that everything is larger in Texas, and this holds true when it comes to Tesla’s connection with the state.
It turns out that not only does Tesla already have an enormous, yet unfinished, Gigafactory located southeast of downtown Austin that corresponds to the story’s famous phrase, but the automaker also confirmed last night that it will host an event called “Giga Fest” at the new facility on April 7 to coincide with the event.
It is conceivable that the event, which will be held to mark one of the company’s most important accomplishments yet, may accidentally become the biggest BBQ in the history of the state of Texas.
This would be in keeping with Tesla’s tradition of going above and beyond in everything they do. For the occasion, Tesla held a carnival-style event at its Gigafactory Berlin site to celebrate the company’s accomplishments.
Even while there will be some variations between the event in Texas and the one organized by Tesla in Germany last year, there will also be some new twists that will be sure to pay tribute to the State of Texas and its citizens.
According to a tweet handed out by Musk late yesterday night, the event will take place on April 7. According to Musk’s previous statements, the event will take place on April 1.
The fact that it was April Fools’ Day on that specific day may have tipped Musk off, and he may have opted to relocate the Giga Texas event six days later in order to avoid making a mistake.
According to Musk, Tesla will hold a gigantic BBQ for fans, enthusiasts, and owners in October that will be the largest meeting of Tesla owners in history, and probably the largest gathering in history, according to the company.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, announced in December that the event will take happen, but that it would not take place until the beginning of 2022.
Members of the local community will be able to take tours of Tesla’s manufacturing facilities. An internal tour of the Gigafactory Berlin site was included in the event for locals, which gave them some unique and intriguing insights into the plant’s operations.
Tesla’s new car colors, as well as Model Y vehicles built in Berlin, were on display for members of the public to see and test drive.
Attendance at the Berlin event was restricted to 5,000 people due to limitations set by the German government as a consequence of the emergence of COVID-19 virus.
Texas has been more flexible with mask restrictions and other regulations than other states, despite the possibility that this may occur there.
However, at this point, there is no indication as to how many people will be allowed to attend the event, which is unfortunate.
Assuming and when it is built, Tesla’s Gigafactory Texas will be one of the company’s most important achievements. Even while Tesla waits for the “final certification” of the Austin-built Model Y before commencing deliveries, significant developments are already being made in the plant’s manufacturing facilities.
Following the release of its new 4680 and structural battery packs earlier this week, Tesla said that they would be used in all-new Model Y vehicles that are supplied from the factory, bringing a new battery and vehicle design to the market for the first time.
It was stated that these developments will take place on Tesla’s Battery Day in late 2020, and they have the potential to be some of Tesla’s most important achievements in the company’s history.
The first shipments are likely to arrive in the near future. It was seen earlier this week that vehicle trailers laden with Tesla Model Y units were leaving the Texas factory, indicating that the first 4680 and structural battery pack Model Y units would be delivered to initial customers within the coming few days or weeks.
