Tesla has unveiled the Tesla Factory where it will build the Model S and future Tesla vehicles.
The former NUMMI factory closed in April 2010. Tesla purchased the factory in May. The Tesla Factory is the only auto assembly plant in California, and the first facility dedicated exclusively to the mass production of electric vehicles.
The Tesla Factory will combine the best automotive and Silicon Valley talent within a proven manufacturing facility to produce the car of the 21st century – Model S. The Model S will be the first electric premium sedan designed from the ground up to take full advantage of the electric vehicle architecture.
“This is a momentous day in Tesla history, turning our advanced electric vehicle technology into a mass manufacturing reality,” said Tesla CEO Elon Musk. “Model S is blazing a new trail for the industry and it will all happen right here – the Tesla Factory gives us plenty of room to grow.”
The Model S will to be a pure electric premium sedan, designed from the ground up to take full advantage of the electric vehicle architecture. The sedan will deliver the foremost design and technology in the automotive world. It will raise the bar of vehicle efficiency, meet the highest standards for safety, and provide more cargo space than any other sedan. With an optional extended-range battery pack, the Model S will travel over 300 miles per charge.
