Elon Musk is looking up to something new and that is a Cybertruck gigafactory that could be placed in “central USA,” and Model Y production “for East Coast too.” That’s a new goal after making a million Teslas.
The tweets that revealed the new goal came just hours after the exec polled followers on whether or not the Berlin factory Tesla is building should include a “mega rave cave” so we’ll see if any of these things come true.
There was a tweet in February that got people wondering if building a factory in Texas is a possibility for the comapny, so we aren’t sure now about what to hang on to, although the possibility of Elon Musk going on an Amazon HQ2-like quest collecting bids to put down roots seems very much possible.
Scouting locations for Cybertruck Gigafactory. Will be central USA.

Although the Model Y is available already as Tesla’s milestone vehicle yesterday and shipments are scheduled to begin any moment from today. But the electric truck is a bit further off.
Those who’re in a hurry can get Mattel’s version sooner – with production programmed to start in late 2021. We’ll see if that’s long enough to keep Tesla’s options opens on where to build the factory of its polarizing, angular pickup.
