An hour ago Tesla released a stunning video showing how its teams work inside Giga Berlin and showed how Model Y is produced in its German gigafactory.
Tesla also invited viewers to come and work at Giga Berlin, writing "Come join the Giga Berlin team!"
So Tesla will have to keep hiring diligently at Giga Berlin. A good 3,000 people currently work in Grünheide. 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.
