Tesla's representatives in Germany and the Minister of Economy, Labor and Energy of the state of Brandenburg, Jörg Steinbach, today confirmed that Tesla will build a battery cell manufacturing plant for Giga Berlin in Grünheide, according to Der Tagesspiegel.
The subsequent expansion of Giga Berlin, which will include the construction of a battery facility, will be a next-phase process. This is not active construction at the moment, so the approval process for it has not started yet.
Tesla representatives in Germany and Jörg Steinbach have confirmed that production will be located in Grünheide, Brandenburg. Battery production is one of the most expensive in EVs, and supplies rate-limit production capacity. It is welcome and exciting news that Tesla is planning to manufacture the most expensive component of its vehicles in Giga Berlin. The new plant, which will assemble Tesla vehicles for Europe, will equip them with batteries of its own production. This will significantly reduce production time and save costs--yet another step forward in accelerating Tesla's mission for global, sustainable energy.
