Tesla Berlin factory may launch Model Y next year

At the end of last month, Tesla opened its new plant at the Gigafactory in Berlin, Germany, and it is expected that production will begin on site in July 2021.

Only in February did a German court grant Tesla permission to clear part of the forest for a Berlin company, and tremendous progress has already been made at this location, including clearing the forest and leveling the land.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk says the plant will produce batteries, powertrains and vehicles starting with Model Y. He wants the first Model Y to leave the production line by July 2021. This schedule was recently repeated by the Minister of Economics in the State of Brandenburg, Jörg Steinbach, despite new plans.


The Tesla Berlin Gigafactory project can cost up to 4 billion euros (4.5 billion dollars) and lead to the employment of 12,000 people who will produce 500,000 cars a year.
