Tesla Giga Berlin could start production and deliveries of its made-in-Germany cars, Brandenburg's environment ministry has said. This was the significant event that actually launches the factory.
According to the state government of Brandenburg, Tesla's electric vehicle factory Giga Berlin could start operations as planned. “We currently have no information that would prevent it from being put into operation,” Frauke Zelt, spokeswoman for the Ministry of the Environment, said on Saturday. Although Tesla received permission to start production at the factory and produce 500,000 vehicles per year on March 4, the company had to comply with the requirements and conditions with the relevant authorities before it could begin production and delivery of vehicles. However, the ministry indicated that not all requirements had to be met for the commissioning of parts of the system. Because not all of the approximately 400 permit requirements and conditions apply to all parts of the factory. After two weeks, the ministry's checks have been completed and Giga Berlin can now start production and delivery.
The handover ceremony for the first vehicles will take place on March 22 at Giga Berlin. Many politicians are expected to be present for the official opening of the first Tesla EV factory in Europe on Tuesday, including Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Federal Economy Minister Robert Habeck. In addition, Tesla CEO Elon Musk wants to personally hand the first cars to customers. The event will also be joined by Brandenburg Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke, Brandenburg Minister of Economy Jörg Steinbach, and Brandenburg Minister of the Environment Axel Vogel.
