Video: Elon Musk Consulted With & Nbsp; Twitter Users On & Nbsp; About The New Plant
The head of Tesl, Elon Musk, decided to consult with Twitter users about the need to build a new plant. He created a poll on his page asking "GigTexas?" and two possible answers: "Damn, yes!" or not".
The poll lasted exactly one day. More than 305 thousand users of the social network took part in it. As a result, 80.2 percent voted to build a plant in Texas, which could become Tesla's third production site in the United States.
- According to Inside’EVs, a TeslCybertruck pickup may be launched in Texas. Its armored body, made of ultra-high-strength stainless steel, has nothing to do with other models of the brand and, most likely, the pickup will require a new factory, rather than modernization of other sites.
In addition, Texas is the leader among other states in pickup truck sales. At the same time, according to polls, the majority of Texas residents did not like the Cybertruck, but they are proud of the locally made cars. Therefore, the release of Tesla's pickup in Texas will increase the reputation of the new product in an important region.
- Earlier, Elon Musk said that he plans to change the names of Tesla factories, abandoning digital indices. Thus, Gigafactory 1 will become GigNevada, Gigafactory 2 will become GigNew York, Gigafactory 3 will become GigShanghai, and Gigafactory 4 will become GigBerlin.
- During the premiere of TeslCybertruck, it was announced that the start of serial production of the novelty is scheduled for the end of 2021. At the same time, the company received more than 250 thousand pickup orders and each customer paid a refundable deposit of $ 100.
