Despite the rapid construction speed of Giga Berlin, production of Model Y was scheduled to begin in mid-2021. Nevertheless, there is every reason to believe that Model Y made in Germany may begin to roll off the assembly line of Tesla's European factory much sooner.
Twitter user @CaptainVoni has an order for made in Germany Model Y LR RWD. He tweeted that an employee from Tesla's Austrian sales department contacted him today and said that the delivery of his car is expected in the first half of 2021.
In its Q3 2020 financial report, the company confirmed that equipment move-in to Giga Berlin will start over the coming weeks. Several days ago, the installation of equipment in the Paint Shop was started. At that time, the installation of ventilation pipes begun and something similar to an air conditioner was noticed in the building.
On October 27th, @Gf4Tesla/Twitter noted that the first aggregates of "GEICO TAIKI-SHA" for the Paint Shop are lifted into a building. Since the installation of the equipment has already begun, production of the German-made Model Y is likely to start earlier than previously anticipated.
