Tesla created and launched into mass production the line of SEXY cars. And this is only the beginning because, in addition to the upcoming Cybertruck, Semi, and Roadster, the company intends to continue to create new models.
The Chinese Tesla R&D center has already urged everyone to join the team and help the company to create a car in the Chinese style and the European R&D center can also please us with new models.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the company will have its own R&D center in Germany on the same day that it announced the location of Giga Berlin. Europe, obviously, has extensive experience in automotive design and engineering, so this desire is very reasonable.
The Germans are famous for their automotive industry and engineering knowledge, while Italians are famous for their sense of design. Many of the most beautiful and functional cars ever created have come out of Europe.
Since Tesla’s car design is currently happening in Hawthorne (LA), engineering in Palo Alto (Silicon Valley), and manufacturing in Fremont (SF), the European R&D center, would allow the company to hire designers who, for whatever reason do not want to or can not relocate to California. Also, the local design team will better understand the needs of the local market.
The layout of many European cities is very compact, so Europeans have logical questions about whether Tesla will present something more compact than Model Y. Musk, answering a similar question, said that perhaps the German design team would create and develop something like that.
This means that in addition to Model Y and 3, which will be produced at Giga Berlin, the world can also see other models that will be developed in Germany.
