In case y'all were napping, Tesla incorporated a separate construction company/division in China. Its scope includes "architectural design, construction, and building materials.". This was reported by Electrek.co.
GF3 in China is pretty much completed, so why would Tesla form a whole new construction division now?
I can only imagine what's on the mind of the head honcho, but here's to speculating:
- Leverage their experience in erecting a GF in record time (about 8 months or so) for other countries. GF4 in Europe is next on deck.
- Replicate the same knowledge for future GF in China
- Expansion for GF5/6/7 in other parts of China for regional export, perhaps leaving room for dedicated battery production.
- Work with the Boring Company WRT tunnel digging projects
Any other outlandish speculationS?
