Gigafactory FAQs

What is a gigafactory? 

A gigafactory is the name given to manufacturing facilities where products related to electrification and decarbonization are made. The term was originally coined by Elon Musk’s company Tesla with the creation of its first gigafactory facility in Nevada. The title has also been adopted by clean technology companies and electric vehicle manufacturers. 


Why are gigafactories important? 

The UK government has pledged to end the sale of new petrol and diesel petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030, and for all new cars and vans to be fully zero emission at the tailpipe by 2035. Gigafactories for electric vehicle production will therefore need to be created quickly and efficiently at scale. To meet the boom in demand for battery-powered vehicles, manufacturers will need specialist construction facilities.
