BREAKING! Tesla Says It’s Not Constrained By 4680 Battery Cell Supply in 2022 webfi network

Tesla made an important update on the status of its in-house production of the 4680 battery cell. The electric car maker didn’t want to confirm a production capacity, but Tesla did say that it doesn’t expect to have supply constraints from it this year.

The update on Tesla not being constrained by the production of 4680 battery cells came after the release of the company’s Q4 2021 earnings. Tesla Senior Vice President of Engineering, Drew Baglino, provided an update on 4680 battery cell production:

“Throughout 2021, we focused on growing cell supply alongside our in-house 4680 effort to provide us flexibility and insurance as we attempt to grow as fast as possible. As we sit today, sales from suppliers actually sort of exceeds our other factory-limiting constraints that you mentioned, Elon, in 2022. Or to say differently, 4680 cells are not a constraint to our 2022 volume plans, based on the information we have. But we are making meaningful progress on the ramp curve in Kato. We’re building 4680 structural packs every day, which are being assembled into vehicles in Texas. I was driving one yesterday and the day before. And we believe our first 4680 vehicles will be delivered this quarter.”

Torque News expects the first Tesla vehicle to be available with the new 4680 battery to be the Model Y coming from Giga Texas and the date to be in early 2022.

Baglino also said that Tesla is making progress deploying cell production capacity at GIgafactory Texas:

“Our focus on the cell, the pack and the vehicles here is driving yield quality and cost to ensure we’re ready for larger volumes this year as we ramp and next year. And the 4680 and pack tool installations here at Giga Austin are progressing well with some areas producing first parts.”

    What spec will has Model Y with 4680?

  • Wills Green on January 31, 2022

    Why would "Tesla" reveal to you and the press generally the quantity of their battery supply? Why the press need to know this?

  • RogerM on January 31, 2022

    So the "big update", is no update at all? Many are too optimistic with the potential of the 4860 battery pack, but Solid state battery technology offers way more breakthroughs, especially in charging time.

    There is no competition, call me when Tesla’s market share in the US drops to 40 percent

    Thank you so much for saying this. I just knew this chip shortage will not be solved soon (not next year either and Elon knows it. If he really told the truth it would have spooked everyone much more) so I looked it up and it takes years for these brand new factories to actually build the factory to its delicate necessary environmental standards for chips to work. And the demand is skyrocketing not only from the auto or EV sector but all products are continuing to go smart. This may be a blessing in disguise becuase since they can not keep working on new models, it allows them to work on Tesla-bot.

  • Hong Kelvin on January 31, 2022

    Any idea when Model Y will be available in Taiwan?? and which giga factory would be Model Y source from?

  • Don Fields on January 31, 2022

    Maybe you should explain this to the stock market analysts on the Tesla earnings call… they didn't seem capable of hearing, or understanding, or perhaps they didnt want to repeat what Elon and associates actually said and intead say whatever they wanted to have said. The stock market is of course manipulated, just like govt's "bidens inability to even say the word tesla" crowning gm as the electric innovation king of the world!!! Blatant corruption, lies, disinformation, manipulation of a sheeple population, devoid of morals, ethics, integrity, pride, anything denoting any sort of positive character attributes. Our "leaders" in govt, business, finance/banking, religion has always been a joke… if they are "in power" position they are bought and paid for. This is why they all hate Elon … he is honest, cares, legitimate, and uncorruptable. He is our best chance in fixing humanities MANY PROBLEMS, and that is a tall order, but still he is our best shot. Invest in Elon and help save the world or allow the continued domination by the elite to rule until our extinction. That is my honest opinion. Wtfu and evolve or die.

    There is <<NO>> auto production at giga Nevada. Initial production of 4680 for Austin are from Kato rd in Freemont.
