Tesla to Build New Megafactory in China

The project appears to be a complete copy of the Megafactory in California with a capacity of 10,000 Megapacks per year or about 40 GWh.

Tesla also plans to build the factory at an incredible pace, like it did in Lathrop, with construction starting next quarter and production aimed to start in Q2 2024.

The company has indicated that it plans to export the Megapacks built in China worldwide. It will enable Tesla to have production hubs for the critical energy product on both sides of the world.

The California megafactory has: a two-year-long backlog of orders for Megapack as the product has become the go-to for electric utilities wanting to deploy energy storage at a large scale to either stabilize their grid or take better advantage of renewable energy, like solar power.
