The automaker is not giving up production even amid Wall Street concerns about demand for its cars
The Wall Street Journal reported that electric-car maker Tesla is exploring the possibility of expanding its plant near Austin.
According to Texas regulatory documents, work on the new infrastructure could begin as early as this month.
Registration documents filed this week with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation cover battery manufacturing and testing capabilities and other aspects of car production.
Tesla, which makes the Model Y crossover in Texas, said it plans to begin production of its pickup truck, known as the Cybertruck, at the plant this year. The company said the plant can now produce more than 250,000 vehicles a year.
Earlier, Elon Musk said the company could open 10 to 12 new plants to increase production and reach its goal of selling 20 million vehicles by the end of the decade.
