One of the central topics of the annual general meeting was Tesla’s plans to expand production, Elon Musk in this context Approved the previously stated goal of producing 20 million cars annually by 2030, and goes on to explain that this will be accomplished by about 12 companies, each of which will produce one and a half to two million electric vehicles per year.
Recall that Elon Musk previously described plans for company expansions with a fairly simple principle: they should appear on almost every continent where there is sufficient demand for Tesla products. The company is already involved in the production of electric vehicles in the USA, Germany and China, producing traction batteries in the same place and sourcing them from numerous partners at the same time. High interest in organizing the production of batteries in Canada, according to the resource electric, at the annual general meeting, was expressed in a short dialogue with the participants of the event. Elon Musk explained that Canada has often been mentioned by audiences as one of the places to build a new Tesla facility and he is partially Canadian himself through his mother’s birthplace. Officially, the choice of a new site for the construction of the next enterprise will be made later this year, but almost certainly everything will be limited to the territory of North America: Canada, Mexico and the United States itself.
Also this week, the Tesla boss announced that the company had produced its three millionth electric car. In the second half of July, the two millionth locally assembled EV rolled off the Tesla assembly line in California, but combined with other locations, the company quickly reached the milestone of 3 million EVs produced.
In Nevada, where Tesla and Panasonic manufacture traction batteries, old battery recycling has been established, but so far no more than 50 batteries per week are subjected to this process, as the majority of the batteries produced are reused as part of electric vehicles. In addition, the second stage of the life cycle for some of them is their use as part of branded stationary storage systems.
