Today, a historic event took place for Tesla – the company’s first factory in Europe officially opened. It is located in the town of Grünheide, Brandenburg, not far from Berlin. The company already employs about 3,000 people, and in total Gigafactory Berlin will create 12,000 jobs. It is interesting that during all two years the construction was accompanied by various kinds of scandals and protests (mainly by environmentalists and environmental activists), and even today there have been such actions.

Hundreds of guests attended the opening, including Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck and Brandenburg Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke. Of course, it was not without the presence of the head of the company, Elon Musk.

The design capacity of the Gigafactory Berlin is 500,000 electric vehicles per year, but so far the production volumes of vehicles are more modest. Today, the company handed over 30 first Tesla Model Y to its customers. In addition to the crossover, the plant will assemble the Model 3, as well as produce batteries and power plants.

Tesla did not receive special conditions and abandoned plans to

Tesla has abandoned its plans to enter the Indian market. This is attributed to the inability of the Indian government to achieve tariff cuts.

This could be a blow to the expected number of jobs that could be created in India with Tesla’s presence. India remains the largest market in the world where Tesla has yet to be officially represented. Strong import tariffs have been a major impediment to Tesla’s entry into the Indian market. However, there were some indications that the company could enter the market in 2022. Previously, an Indian facility was established in Bangalore as a local arm of the brand.

Tesla did not receive special conditions and abandoned plans to enter the Indian market

India has an incentive strategy for local EV manufacturers, including high import tariffs on EVs. This policy has made it difficult for foreign electric vehicles from China and the US to enter the market. Tesla planned to build an electric car factory in India, but intended to see how its cars perform in the market first. The Indian government, through its transport minister, has said it wants Tesla to build cars inside India rather than relying on imports from China. In addition, the country has not yet established a service center and Supercharger charging stations.

Some of Tesla’s key employees in India are currently being transferred to work in other countries. The government will not provide Tesla with special conditions for the construction of the plant, so the company will continue to develop in other countries for the time being.

All work was done fairly quickly – in just a month, while most of the time was spent on the construction of a suspension for tracks weighing 1.3 tons each. In addition to a considerable number of wheels in the suspension, a total of 24 suspension struts are used.

As a result, the ground clearance of such a comfortable 6-ton electric tank was 80 cm – you can not be afraid of even the toughest off-road. Bloggers have presented only a video of the remake so far, but a video with a real off-road ride should soon appear on the channel. The authors of the alteration have already invited Elon Musk to join the Model T off-road test.
