Thursday evening Tesla officially opened its newest Gigafactory in Texas with an event called “CyberRodeo.” To start the celebration, Tesla put on a massive drone show depicting the company’s Model Y, upcoming Cyber Truck, and a few memes.
Tesla’s GigaTexas plant will begin producing the company’s crossover EV, the Model Y using a new battery format, which you can read more about on our sister site Electrek. What we care about is the drone show that took place at the start.
Drone shows have become a popular way for celebrations to put on fantastic displays, forming massive pieces of art in the skies as Tesla did. Some of the displays were the state of Texas, its Model Y and Cyber Truck vehicles like we said before, and of course, it wouldn’t be an Elon Musk event if it didn’t include a Doge.
Check out the entire event on Tesla’s YouTube channel.
What is GigaTexas?
A brief overview, to meet its demand, Tesla chose Austin, Texas, to build its largest Gigafactory yet. GigaTexas will be a one-stop shop for making the Model Y and eventually the CyberTruck. Raw material will come in one end, and finished vehicles will come out the other.
GigaTexas will also serve as Tesla’s new world headquarters as Elon said the company outgrew where it was located in California. If EVs and green technology interest you, make sure to head over to Electrek for coverage of what was announced at the CyberRodeo event.
