Edit: Tesla announced the achievement via their official Twitter account.
Tesla Giga Berlin has reached a production capacity of 5,000 Model Ys per week, according to a few sources. The factory has reached its first big planned milestone of producing 250,000 vehicles a year.
Tesla Giga Berlin again pleases with its achievements. Several factory sources said that a production capacity of 5,000 vehicles a week has been reached there. This means that at the moment, Giga Berlin has a production capacity of 250,000 vehicles per year, making a very significant contribution to the development and growth of the company.
It has been evident in recent weeks that the increase in production at Giga Berlin is proceeding at a rapid pace. The amazing thing is that the factory was able to achieve an increase in production of 1,000 cars per week in just one month, which underlines the speed of development.
On February 27, the factory announced that it had reached a production milestone of 4,000 Model Ys per week. It also meant that Giga Berlin was able to add 1,000 units a week of production to 3,000 reached in December—that is, in just two months. It is worth bearing in mind that the factory is only open five days a week, with some workshops open six. Considering this, this result becomes even more impressive. At this rate, Phase 1 Giga Berlin will very quickly reach production levels of 500,000 vehicles per year.
As of now, the company has yet to make an official announcement. The Twitter account that posted the information deleted the tweet a few hours later. However, Tesla CEO Elon Musk liked the tweet containing the information about the achievement, which could be an indicator that the information is accurate.
