Tesla Giga Berlin has begun recruiting students for the End Of Line Driver position starting in January. The start time indicates the likely launch of mass production at the factory.

Tesla's factory in Germany is awaiting a final building permit due before the end of this year. Since the manufacturer has already built all the shops necessary for the production and even begun test production, after the permission is received, it will be able to start mass production. It should be kept in mind that the increase in production will occur gradually, so initially one should not expect high capacity.

Until now, it was not known exactly when Tesla would start mass production at Giga Berlin due to many uncertainties beyond the company's control, but recent information indicates that this should happen in January. The company has opened student recruitment for the End Of Line Driver position, which was first seen by @Gf4Tesla/Twitter.


Among the requirements for candidates: be an enrolled student, have a Class B driver's license and driving experience of at least two years, have a good command of German. As an employee, students will work eight or 16 hours a week and will be responsible for re-parking and parking new vehicles at Giga Berlin, as well as supporting other final assembly steps as needed.

Sebastian Grund, Recruitment Manager, High Volume at Tesla, wrote on his LinkedIn that the position will be available starting in January, indicating that Giga Berlin is likely to start mass production at that time. While it is extremely difficult to pinpoint the exact timing, there is a high possibility that Tesla's first European factory will officially begin production in January 2022, after more than two years since the announcement. While this is a long time compared to China, where the factory was commissioned in just 10 months, for Germany, two years for such a large project is incredibly quick.
