Panasonic is responsible for the high tech battery chemistry inside of the Gigafactory, and once the batteries are completed they are handed to Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) to assemble and package them.
"We will of course continue to make new investments in Gigafactory 1, as needed", a Tesla spokesman said in an e-mailed statement.
The two companies were responding to a report by Japan's Nikkei that said they had frozen previous plans to raise the capacity of the plant, which supplies battery packs for Tesla cars.
Tesla and partner Panasonic are halting plans to expand production capacity at Gigafactory 1 amid signs of sagging demand for the company's vehicles, according to a report on Thursday.
Some of those issues may be weakening demand for Tesla vehicles. Recently, Tesla missed its quarterly delivery expectations, which was also concerning because Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk told investors that the Company was efficiently producing vehicles. This seemed to confirm reading the report as potentially misguided because we had heard for the first time of involvement of Panasonic at Tesla's China Gigafactory. "We are seeing significant gains from upgrading existing lines to increase output, which allows Tesla and Panasonic to achieve the same output with less spent on new equipment purchases".
