    Tesla expands in the Bay Area ahead of Model 3 launch, new BART station opens to enable growth


    Tesla plans for the launch of the Model 3 to increase its overall production by a factor of 3 by the end of the year. The company has been betting on several expansions around its Fremont factory in order to prepare for the production ramp up.

    In December, the city of Fremont approved important expansion plans submitted by Tesla, which the automaker refers to as ‘Tesla Master Plan’, back in October. The plan includes the addition of several new buildings that will almost double the size of the already giant electric vehicle factory – 5.3 million square feet to 9.9 million square feet.

    I have this fantasy where Tesla plans to use these warehouses to hold fully-built cars. When they get close to the 200,000 U.S. delivery, they'll just start filling up these warehouses full of U.S.-bound deliveries. Then they'll time it so that the warehouses are full and a new quarter has just started, then they'll start delivering all of them.

    But... you don't really need a warehouse to hold finished cars. A big parking lot is all that's required. Like I said, it's a fantasy. :)
