North America’s Most Productive Car Plant in 2021: Report

Despite producing the most cars in North America from a single plant, Tesla is still ranked 10th among the continent’s major automakers.

According to Bloomberg, Tesla’s Fremont factory in California will produce an average of 8,550 vehicles per week by 2021. This means that Tesla’s Fremont plant produced more cars per week than Toyota’s Georgetown plant in Kentucky, which produced 8,427 vehicles per week.

BMW’s Spartanburg facility in South Carolina and Ford’s truck plant in Dearborn, Michigan were two other car plants that produced a large number of vehicles every week in 2021. The BMW plant produced 8,343 units per week on average, while the Ford plant produced 5,564 units per week.

Despite its meteoric rise and dominance in the electric vehicle market, Tesla remains the tenth largest automaker in North America.

Other auto giants such as General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Stellantis, and Honda have left the car brand in the dust.

Tesla has not disclosed the exact number of cars manufactured in Fremont.

Last year, however, the Fremont plant produced approximately 444,600 cars on a weekly average of 8,550 cars. It also left behind Tesla’s other plants, such as the Giga Shanghai plant, which currently produces the Model 3 and Model Y, the electric car brand’s two most popular models.

Last year, Tesla’s Giga Shanghai factory produced nearly 486,000 electric vehicles. In total, Tesla was able to increase global car production by 83 percent in 2021 compared to 2020, when it produced 930,422 units.

Tesla’s vehicle production is expected to increase significantly this year, as the company has already begun trial manufacturing at its Giga Berlin facility.

Within a few months, the new Gigafactory in Germany is expected to begin serial vehicle production. Tesla is also planning to open a plant in Austin, Texas. With two new plants expected to begin production in the first quarter of this year, the automaker will be able to significantly increase its overall global vehicle production.

A production increase is in line with Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s announcement in October 2021 that he plans to double production in Fremont and Shanghai by 50 percent. He also intends to increase vehicle deliveries by about 50% each year.
