Tesla will produce up to 500 thousand electric cars a year in GermanyDecember 11, 2019
The German newspaper Bild reports that Tesla plans to produce 500,000 electric cars a year at its new plant in a suburb of Berlin.
Last month, Tesla CEO Ilon Musk announced that a site in Grünheide, Brandenburg was chosen to build Tesla cars. The American company will also create a design and development center in Berlin near the new airport of the capital of Germany, the inventor noted.
According to Musk, the plant will produce batteries, powertrains and vehicles, starting with the Model Y crossover. Model 3 will go onto the conveyor later. It is planned to invest up to 4 billion euros in the plant itself.
The Tesla plant will create 10 thousand jobs, the publication notes, citing documents for planning the development of the site, whose territory reaches 420 football fields. Construction will begin in 2020.
