Tesla’s annual shareholder meeting was held on August 4 at the Gigafactory in Austin. An opportunity for Elon Musk to discuss at length the future of the manufacturer. The billionaire specifically announced that Cybertruck pricing and specifications will change before launch. Elon Musk also revealed his ambitious production plans.

A good excuse to talk about the road traveled so far. Musk revealed that Tesla had just passed the model threshold of three million vehicles produced since the founding of the company in 2003. Remember, however, that production only started in 2008 with the production of the Tesla Roadster. 10 years ago we made less than 3000 cars. 10 years later, here we are after making 3 million cars “, especially emphasized the businessman.

Tesla: 100 million target

In the future, Tesla intends to increase its production significantly. “What about the next 10 years? I’d be surprised if it’s not more than 100 million within 10 years”, hopes Elon Musk. Tesla plans to produce 20 million electric cars per year by 2030. To achieve this ambitious goal, the manufacturer will need to operate around 12 Gigafactories. So new factories have to be established as the manufacturer only has six at the moment.

In this regard, Elon Musk mentioned the location of the next Gigafactoy of Tesla during the general meeting. After surveying the audience, he raised the possibility of settling in Canada. This is not the first time that the billionaire has named the country with maple leaves as a potential candidate to host his new Gigafactory. Its location should be officially revealed later this year.
