The manufacturer of electric Tesla plans to build several “Gigafactory” in China, India and in the European part of the world. This was announced by director and founder Elon Musk in a BBC radio broadcast.
Construction companies in the vicinity of markets will significantly save money on shipping.
Remind, now Tesla is building only one “Gigafactory” in the Nevada (US). The project is a joint creation of Tesla and Panasonic, the cost of which is estimated at $5 billion.
The new plant is planned to produce batteries, making their cost should be reduced by at least 30%, which will affect the prices for electric vehicles.
Start of full production on “Gigafactory” is scheduled for 2017, but a few days later Tesla Factory will hold a special opening ceremony for some customers.
