Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed the location for its European Gigafactory. The European Gigafactory will therefore be built in the immediate vicinity of Berlin, Germany – to be more accurate in the Brandenburg Grunheiden -. In the European plant, batteries, drive strands and vehicles are to be manufactured, starting with the upcoming Model Y of Tesla. Musk had revealed his plans in the awarding of the “Golden Steering Wheel” in Berlin.

Short drawing to the history: As part of the promulgation of the final figures for the third quarter of 2019, Tesla brought his European Gigafactory.

The Gigafactory Berlin would be the fourth of Tesla, after the massive battery system of Tesla and the first Gigafactory in Nevada, a solar production facility in Buffalo, New York, and the recent and record suspects Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai, China. At the beginning of this summer, Musk to understand that he expects building to be “advanced” within the next 12 to 18 months and the European Gigafactory will go into operation by the end of 2021.

This would be well suited to the plans to bring the production of some models to Europe. Currently, Tesla Model S, Model X and Model 3 are produced for the European market in Fremont, California, and go through a costly and lengthy logistical process for the delivery to the European customers.

Since Tesla is currently endeaving the cash flow continues to improve and at the same time to make investments in order to achieve the previously expected Model-Y production, Gigafactory 4 can be considered in Berlin as a crucial element of the basis for satisfying global demand.
