Tesla has brought delivery trucks to Giga Berlin to move Model Y vehicles.
The question is this: Which vehicles Tesla will move now? Are these trucks here for the removal of the old pre-production Model Y vehicles that Tesla built for the test purposes? Or are these trucks for the purpose of delivering made-for-sale Model Y vehicles.
Hopefully Tesla will soon start delivery Model Y electric vehicles from Giga Berlin.
A good 3,000 people currently work at Tesla Giga Berlin. However, Tesla needs at least 10,000 employees for mass production. Tesla also wants to set up a second production line this year. Then hundreds of thousands of Teslas could roll off the assembly line in the coming year.
But not only cars are to be built in East Brandenburg. Tesla is also building a battery factory that is scheduled to start later this year. And Elon Musk gave a hint on Tuesday about other products that could possibly also be made in Grünheide. "We will also be making storage devices. This will be very important to enable storage of renewable energy. We are extremely confident that the world can transition to a sustainable energy future - with a combination of solar, wind, storage and electric Cars," the tech billionaire underscored.
More Tesla products in the pipeline
This means that mega batteries may soon also be available as power storage devices for the home "Made in Grünheide". Tesla has also announced plans to add battery recycling factories to all of its locations. And that's not all. After all, Tesla also wants to produce other parts in Grünheide, such as bumpers, which are currently being delivered.
But not only Tesla still has some challenges ahead. The region is also in demand, says Martin Gornig from the German Institute for Economic Research. "For the region, the work is only just beginning, because not only is a car to be produced that comes off the assembly line there, but the region also wants to establish itself technologically as an electromobility center in Europe."
