A few days ago, 11 Model Y bodies in white were seen at Giga Berlin. They were quickly transported to the production buildings so that equipment calibration could begin as soon as possible.
Progress in testing equipment at Giga Berlin continues and production of the first Model Ys is expected to begin by the end of 2021. Two days ago, factory construction progress observer, @Gf4Tesla/Twitter, noticed a shipment of 11 bodies in white (BIWs) that had been transported to Giga Berlin. Nine of them were already unpacked, with two more in boxes awaiting unpacking.

At the moment, Tesla is testing equipment, within which it has the right to launch production lines. BIW Model Ys are needed to carry out its final calibration. The high speed at which Tesla is currently operating indicates that the production facility is in final adjustment. Previously, when BIWs were found on the factory premises, they stood outside for a long time, since they were not yet needed. But now, Tesla is putting the BIWs to work right away.
As a reminder, Body in White is the stage in automobile manufacturing in which a car's body frame has been joined together, which is before painting and before the motor, chassis sub-assemblies, or trim have been integrated into the structure. In fact, it is in this workshop that the body of a car is first formed.
