The company now has plans to maximize output at existing factories in California and Shanghai and by also bringing online entirely new factories in Austin, Texas and Berlin.

However, last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that he sees challenges with battery production next year that can hold back plans to scale up electric vehicle production over the next two to three years.

He also said that Tesla is being held back by numerous challenges and is facing a “high class” problem of orders outpacing production.

Musk added that in the coming two to three years, the concerns would be the number of gigawatt-hours of battery produced, the supply chain, and the rate at which battery materials are being mined and refined.

Tesla’s recently launched Giga Shanghai plant is expected to ramp up production and sell an estimated 1.5 million this year and help it establish a stronger foothold in Europe.
