Despite rumours of delays popping up in a newspaper report, Tesla Motor Inc. has stated that their $5 billion battery factory construction project in Nevada is well underway and perfectly on schedule. 

According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, the paper that originally printed the story regarding delays of the factory, a national job board for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers updated a listing for “Project Tiger” (code name for the factory) changing its demand for electricians. The paper then went on to say that the project had been cut back by 80%. 

However, according to Tesla representatives, as reported by Reuters, assure the plant is on target to begin battery production in 2016.
