Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk said the company has a new naming system for its factories. No longer a Gigafactory, just a Giga.
Musk said on Twitter the factory names will reference the area it’s located rather than a number – Giga Shanghai instead of Gigafactory 3, for example.
Tesla currently has three Gigafactories located in Nevada, New York, and Shanghai.
A fourth Gigafactory will be built near Berlin. Constructed is slated to begin in March. The factory will be Tesla’s second outside the U.S. and first in Europe. When completed, it’s expected to build 150,000 units to start and ramp up to 500,000. Musk has said the first car of the line at Giga Berlin will be a Model Y.
