Tesla Preps 4680 Cells for CA Production

Ramping Up Battery Production for Tesla EVs

Tesla is making ready to substantially enhance their independently designed 4680 cell battery manufacture near their electric vehicle assembly hub in Fremont, California. Not long ago the automaker contracted a fabrication facility which was intended for fundamental battery technology and production, more than likely for the agreed-upon needed 4680 cells.

Sources privy to the particulars released information to Business Times showing that Tesla had leased 210,000 square feet of production-related property from Prologis. This area was reported to be applied to the generation of 4680 battery cells.

Tesla has been intensifying its production of the 4680 battery cells for some time now, primarily at a trial plant near their Fremont factory on Kato Road. By the third quarter of 2022, they had already tripled the internal output of these cells and successfully obtained permission to expand the amount manufactured even further. As explained by Zachary Kirkhon in an article for Teslarati:

Tesla reported that by the close of last year, it had achieved a production capability of more or less 1,000 4680 cells each week. The e-auto manufacturer’s long term aim is to reach a yearly manufacturing level of 100 Gigawatt hours (GWh) as soon as they activate their new method at Giga Nevada. Ultimately, their object is to ultimately ascend to 1,000 GWh.

Tesla Company guaranteed that its 4680 cells should cause no worries for its 2170 ones. Tesla intends to keep examining different forms, dimensions, and ingredients of the battery cells as well as counting on extra collaborators in order to offer it with the appropriate source of batteries besides those they are creating internally.

Tesla remains dependent on a large number of battery partners, with CATL, LG Energy Solutions, and Panasonic amongst them. According to reports, Tesla has also just started procuring electric vehicle battery cells from BYD.
