Tesla’s Chair, Robyn Denholm, confirms that they are building factories around the world.
At the National Press Club in Canberra, Denholm stated that they believe that the world will move forward towards electric vehicles and batteries that are lithium-ion based.
That is why Tesla is putting in the work to be present in all of the major markets around the world.
The Tesla Chair stated that they are building numerous Tesla manufacturing facilities around the world to support their goal of making 20 million vehicles a year by 2030.
In addition to its existing facilities in California and Shanghai, Tesla has only lately constructed manufacturing facilities in Texas and Berlin.
Tesla’s presence in various markets around the world plays a significant role for the company. Tesla’s overarching objective is to produce 20 million electric vehicles by the year 2030.
One way to get there is to ensure that its manufacturing operations are effective and productive worldwide. Additionally, this is also the reason why the EV company is doubling down on its initiatives in markets where they have strong demand.
According to Bloomberg, Denholm stated, “Producing vehicles on continents is important because, again, when you’re setting up a supply chain for the long term, you want those miles those cars travel before someone actually owns them to be the shortest possible, and that includes shipping and sea freight because all of those processes add to CO2 emissions.”
One of Tesla’s most significant markets is China. The company continues to receive a high level of demand for EVs. Tesla has a manufacturing facility in Shanghai, which also contributes a huge number to the overall production of EVs.
The EV company also experienced a turbulent operation during the past few months when China had a stringent COVID-19 lockdown due to the outbreak in the area.
However, after a production line renovation, the EV manufacturer’s China operations are back in full swing. In total, Tesla shipped 76,965 Chinese-made cars in August, barely short of the record-breaking 78,906 deliveries in June.
