Before the construction of its Gigafactory in Nevada is complete, Tesla is already set to expand the facility. Tesla has confirmed it has since tripled its land purchases in the state, adding a huge 1893 acres to the 1000 it secured last year.


Most of the new space is buffer space according to a Tesla spokesperson, where the company could install solar farms in the area to power the Gigafactory. The electric car maker could also soon secure itself even more acerage, especially if their new cars truly are going to be selling out constantly, just as the Internet-connected Powerwall did.
