Bulldozers and other heavy construction equipment have been at work for weeks at the location of Tesla's future $1.1 billion electric vehicle factory in southeast Travis County.

The planned 4.5 million sq.-ft. factory will make Tesla's cybertrucks and Model Y electric crossover utility vehicles.

The site sits on 2,100 acres of land, just off Texas 130.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk first referred to the plant as “Cybertruck Gigafactory” since it’s also going to be the site where Tesla’s electric pickup truck is going to be produced.
