Tesla announced that the Texas Super Works has produced its 10,000th Model Y electric SUV as production ramps up. one of Tesla’s biggest stories so far is that the automaker is trying to achieve production ramp-ups at both the Berlin Super Works and the Texas Super Works.
The two factories are expected to roughly double Tesla’s production capacity in the next year.
Those production ramps are hard to predict, however, and Tesla isn’t exactly willing to reveal production numbers.
It shared the milestone, though, when today the automaker announced that the Texas super factory produced its 10,000th Model Y.
It did not reveal exactly what the current production rate is, but it is likely to be more than a thousand units per week.
In June, media outlets reported that Tesla had significantly ramped up production at the plant, though this also coincided with the automaker’s start of production of the Model Y, which uses the older battery architecture of the 2170 cell.
As a result, there are two main questions about Tesla’s production ramp-up at the Texas super factory: How many cars are being produced each week? And, how many of those are produced with 4680 battery cells and structural battery packs?
Last month, Tesla was spotted stacking structural battery packs at the Texas super factory – hinting at a possible increase in Model Y’s using structural battery packs.
Production of the 4680 battery is reportedly considered a bottleneck. Tesla has been relying on its pilot plant in California to supply the Texas super plant, but it has been having to direct Texas to start mass production of 4680 cells by the end of this year.
