Giga Texas ramps up; now manufacturing Model Y Long Range – Not a Tesla App

Spread the love

Tesla has reportedly ramped up production at Gigafactory Texas to thousands of units per week, with the addition of the Model Y Long Range on top of the Standard Range version.
Tesla CEO, Elon Musk noted during an interview with Tesla Owners of Silicon Valley that the company’s new factories, including Gigafactory Texas, are “money furnaces”.
Gigafactory Texas is one of Tesla’s most important projects, as it invested billions of dollars in the factory, and it will not break even until the plant reaches volume production.
According to a recent report from Electrek, Giga Texas is now capable of producing at least 2,000 vehicles per week since the Model Y Long Range was offered to customers.
Other sources indicated that Tesla was already making as many as 5,000 cars per week.
In either case, reaching a run-rate of 2,000 to 5,000 vehicles per week is impressive, considering that the facility was just opened last April.
Twitter user @JoeTegtmeyer shared images of the model Y production ramp up as the second quarter came to a close.
Giga Texas 29 June 2022 … Model Y's on the move & production now 100+ per day! activity all over and not slowing down as we close out June and the 2nd Quarter! See more in my video later today! @JoeTegtmeyer pic.twitter.com/FDVFcUbBnM
He also shared aerial videos of the factory on YouTube, showing hundreds of cars leaving the factory every day. In this flyover by Joe Tegtmeyer, Tesla prepares 300 Model Ys for delivery.

Tesla now has 40,000 Supercharger stations worldwide, and more are in the works, including a massive 88-stall facility in a small town in Arizona. @MarcoRPTesla, who has a knack for finding Supercharger plans, tweeted the detailed construction project. The drawings show 20 prefabricated Supercharger units, two trailer-friendly stalls, and four solar canopies.
Quartzsite, Arizona, with a population of 2,413, is the location of the huge Supercharging station. Incredibly, it is being built right across the road from a 36-stall Supercharger. So why is there now one Supercharger for every 20 people in Quartzsite? Interstate 10 runs through the small town, which is at the intersection of U.S. Route 95 and Arizona State Route 95 with I-10.
This location is approximately three and a half hours away from Las Vegas, Nevada, San Diego, California, and Los Angeles, California. It is also two hours from Phoenix, Arizona. Tourism is the main economic driver of the small town.
Tesla recently asked followers of its @TeslaCharging Twitter account to submit locations where Superchargers are needed. This location makes sense with the amount of traffic going through the area. It also has very little precipitation, which means those solar canopies will be powered up by the sun. That is another long-term vision of the company, to have solar and battery packs at Supercharging locations.
Also, the company plans to allow non-Teslas at its Supercharger locations. That alone will increase the demand at hubs like Quartzsite.
It’s hard to believe the Supercharger network was launched in 2012. A decade later, they are turning into a more common sight around the world. According to the company: Superchargers can add up to 200 miles (322 kilometres) of range in just 15 minutes.
In September, 420 Tesla projects were announced, including a 164-stall Supercharger hub on the I-5 corridor located in Coalinga, California. That will be the world’s largest Tesla Supercharger location. But that is nothing compared to reports of the largest EV charging location in the world, located in China’s hi-tech city of Shenzhen. There is an electric taxi charging station with a total of 637 fast chargers.

The moment many Tesla owners have waited for has arrived: Full Self-Driving Beta is now available to anyone in North America who has requested it, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Musk took to his newly acquired social media platform Twitter to announce the news.
“Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta is now available to anyone in North America who requests it from the car screen, assuming you have bought this option,” writes Musk. “Congrats to [the] Tesla Autopilot/AI team on achieving a major milestone!”
This historic moment comes just days after Tesla began rolling out its latest version of FSD Beta, version 10.69.3.1, which is version 2022.36.20. It includes feature updates like a revamped Energy App, alternate routes, blind spot camera location, and more.
Now, this version is going wide to “anyone in North America who requests it.”
To receive FSD Beta you’ll just need to request it in your vehicle under Controls > Autopilot. There is no longer a minimum safety score to achieve and everyone should receive the beta shortly after requesting it, as long as you’ve bought or subscribed to FSD Beta in the U.S. or Canada.
There are a few requirements for you to receive Tesla’s FSD Beta. Your vehicle will need to have Tesla’s FSD computer, known as hardware 3.0 or above. It also currently requires your vehicle to be on a 2022.36 update or below.
If your vehicle is on one of the 2022.40 updates, then you’ll need to wait until the next beta update since the current beta (v10.69.3.1) is based on 2022.36 and Tesla doesn’t normally allow vehicles to roll back to a previous version.
Some Model S and Model X vehicles may require a camera upgrade before being eligible for FSD Beta.
Tesla’s next FSD Beta, v11, which is still being tested internally may also be released to some external testers starting today. A few days ago Musk confirmed on Twitter that version 11 would be widened “before Thanksgiving.” FSD Beta v11 includes a unified tech stack for city and highway Autopilot use and is expected to go to a wide release sometime next month.
When it comes to FSD Beta updates, Tesla starts distributing to employees first for testing and going wider as they collect data and fix bugs. Then, based on a number of factors, Tesla broadens up distribution to more owners. However, this may soon change when FSD Beta gets incorporated into all Tesla software builds. This may happen with FSD Beta v11.
For owners new to FSD Beta, it’s surely a day a lot of us have been waiting for and a monumental moment for Tesla. However, it doesn’t stop there, it looks like we’ll soon all have access to the next big update, FSD Beta v11.
