Tesla’s new Texas lithium refinery to support 1M electric vehicles by 2025

Tesla officially broke ground Monday on a Texas lithium refinery, making it the only U.S. automaker to refine its own lithium.
CEO Elon Musk said the refinery will produce enough battery grade lithium for 1 million electric vehicles by 2025, which would make Tesla the largest processor of lithium in North America. Tesla will continue to rely on existing suppliers like Albemarle and Livent as it aims to reach its 2023 sales goal of around 1.8 million cars globally.
Musk said the company aims to finish construction on the refinery next year, with full scale production slated for 2025. The executive described the timeline as “extremely fast by normal standards.” That may be true, but it’s slower than Tesla had originally projected. During Tesla’s Investor Day in March, Drew Baglino, senior vice president of powertrain and energy engineering, said the company aimed to have the refinery operational by the end of this year and start production early next year.
