The opening of a gigafactory in Germany is delayed by six months



According to one of the German specialized publications, the opening of a gigafactory in the suburbs of Berlin is delayed. The delay will be at least six months.

The Berlin Gigafactory is one of Tesla’s most important projects right now, as it plans to launch Model Y electric vehicles for the European market. Also linked to it are plans for the next generation of electric vehicles, which will use Tesla’s new battery technology with the new 4680 battery cell.

Initially, production was expected to start in July 2021, but there were some problems with the project. More specifically, the automaker was unable to obtain important building and environmental permits in a timely manner.

Regardless, CEO Elon Musk said last week in connection with the release of another quarterly report that he expects production to begin this year: “We are building factories as quickly as we can. Both Texas and Berlin are doing well, and we expect limited production at these plants to begin this year and full-scale production next year. ”

The Automobilwoche publication, cited by the source, said that the schedule for the commissioning of the Berlin Tesla Gigafactory has shifted to January 2022: “The start of mass production at the new Tesla Gigafactory in Grünheide near Berlin has been postponed for six months until the end of January 2022. Tesla boss Elon Musk officially gave the team another six months. “
