If true, this would dwarf GF1:
Chinese firm makes insane $23 billion investment in production of 1 million EVs/yr and 500 GWh of batteries - Electrek
Probably a translation mistake with 50 instead of 500. That would still be huge.

Cars with 500 KWh batteries maybe? Unlikely, but I'm sure some people would be dreaming of the possibility. 50 GWh is nothing to sneeze at though.

I expect most of that will be used for domestic production. The Chinese are really pushing electric cars and their domestic car market is exploding.

Germany just started, and they are already looking for the next location. We will see if Texas changes their tune about direct sales there, if they get a shot at the next plant. Would this be for the CYBERTRUCK and the semi?

He better get full unfettered sales of vehicles written into law before they build anything.

He changed his twitter location to Austin, so he could be there (physically or virtually) negotiating such a change.

Others think that means the gigafactory would be at or near Austin, but for all we know he could put it anywhere between there and the mexican border and still have access to the coast for a reasonable price.
