12 incredible facts about Elon Musk's Gigafactory
« on: November 19, 2015, 08:22:46 AM »
Elon Musk has lofty ambitions for Tesla during the next few years.

By 2017, the company aims to begin production of its more affordable Model 3. And by 2020 it plans to ramp up production to build as many as 500,000 vehicles per year, an ambitious goal considering the company currently only produces about 50,000 vehicles a year.

For any of this to be possible, though, Tesla must first complete its Gigafactory, a giant battery plant appropriately located in Sparks, Nevada on Electric Avenue.

While the plant isn't expected to be complete until next year, Tesla and Musk have already revealed quite a few details about the factory that are pretty mind blowing.

Here’s a look at the 12 most incredible facts that have been revealed about the Gigafactory so far.

the-factory-is-located-on-a-plot-of-land-that-is-more-than-three-times-the-size-of-central-park - 12 incredible facts about Elon Musk's Gigafactory - Technology
The factory is located in Storey County, Nevada on a 3,000 acre lot of land.

The original site was 1,000 acres, but in June 2015, the company purchased an additional 1,864 acres of adjacent land.

The purchase will enable the company to expand the size of the factory by 50 or 100 times, Musk has said.

Currently, the factory is 71 feet tall and stretches for more than 5.5 million square feet, or the equivalent of 126 acres.

To put that into perspective, that is more than 95 football fields. It’s so big, in fact that, Musk even gets blown away when he visits the plant.

“It will blow your mind. You see it in person and then realize, F---, this is big," Musk recently told Fast Company.
