With Tesla’s battery cell limitations, it’s unclear if that volume can be achieved this year.
Tesla would need at least 7.5 MWh of 4680 battery cells to produce the vehicles, which is not an incredible amount, but we don’t know Tesla’s current production capacity at its 4680 pilot plant in Fremont.
As previously reported, the pilot plant’s primary mission this year is to support the production of Model Y at Gigafactory Berlin, which is expected to start in the coming months.
Every Tesla Semi would require at least six times as many battery cells as a Model Y electric SUV.
How many commissioned Tesla Semi electric trucks do you think Tesla will produce in 2021?
