Factory in Grunheide

Tesla boss Elon Musk is probably already scraping with the hooves because he finally wants to start production in the German Gigafactory. However, the first test vehicles from Grunheide were "inadequate" -Now the carmaker wants to build up to 2000 more test copies.
After the feeling of endless shifts and delays, Tesla is finally on the home stretch with his new Gigafactory in the Brandenburg Grunheide – if there was not the quality of the quality.
Tesla is still waiting for the granting of the final approval. With one of these over twenty preliminary permits, Tesla had carried out machine and investment tests at the end of October and built around 250 vehicles. However, according to Tesla, the parts and bodies manufactured so far show "A significant defective quality deviating from the plant specifications". According to Tesla, further tests are now necessary, which the carmaker justifies it, "that the quality and manufacturing efficiencies in relation to the operating units mentioned have not yet been reached for plant and aggregate acceptance" be.

Tesla may 2.Build 000 copies of the Model Y
Now the Brandenburg State Environment Agency has another preliminary permit for the production of 2.000 copies of the Model Y. According to the decision of 7. January, the permission for plant and machine tests granted at the end of October will be extended with 250 vehicles and extended until March- now Tesla can carry out a pre-series as part of performance tests of the overall line, in the weekly up to 500 bodies and overall "maximum 2.000 bodies in total" may be manufactured.
Tesla is allowed in his press plant according to document 6.Process 000 parts weekly, all parts may be painted and installed in final assembly. Tesla, however, should not be cheap to stand: the bodies must not be sold later. This is how the state environmental office writes: "The parts and bodies generated during the system tests must not be used as a sales goods". And: "Use of the parts and bodies generated during the system tests for the production of sales -capable vehicles is not permitted."
It is unclear whether Tesla scraped the manufactured parts directly – in any case, the car manufacturer has to document their whereabouts, according to an edition of the state environmental office. Since these are only body and individual parts, the financial blow for Tesla should not be as large as with the production of complete electric cars-the engine and especially the battery as the most expensive component are missing in the test copies.
Environmentalists make an objection – but probably in vain
The Environmental Protection Association Grune Liga Brandenburg, which had submitted a lawsuit against Tesla when building the Gigafactory several times. The association even suspects perfidious motifs behind the performance tests, as the Tagesspiegel news portal reports. Green League Managing Director Michael Ganschow suspects that the masses and emissions of the Gigafactory can be regulated with the mass tests, "so that an approval can be issued at all".
However, there is hardly anything in the way of a final approval for the Tesla plant. After interest associations, environmentalists and residents were allowed to present their concerns regarding the construction in several rounds, the document of the Brandenburg State Environment Affair says: "In the meantime, the second online consultation has ended and the concerns claimed do not indicate that the project conflicts significant obstacles to approval."

There are now a lot of competition in the electric middle class. Site tested and compared all relevant mid-range electric cars.
