Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk said that it is time to bring its Semi commercial truck to “volume production,” as the U.S. electric vehicle maker ramps up vehicle production after a brief virus-related shutdown.

“Production of the battery and powertrain will take place at Giga Nevada,” Musk said in an email seen by Reuters.

He said most of the other work will probably take place in other states.

Musk did not specify a timeframe for the production.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
