Tesla Giga Berlin Displays 2 New Brilliant Colors for German-Made Model Y

Tesla Giga Berlin showed for the first time two new colors for the made-in-Germany Model Y. One special Crimson red body and one new Deep blue body were seen at the factory by visitors at Giga Fest—while the third, a Khaki-like color, was not seen, but seems will also be offered.

The Giga Berlin launch party took place on October 9. At the event, Tesla introduced its guests to the world's most modern electric vehicle factory. Among other things, visitors were able to look behind the scenes during a factory tour and found several Easter eggs cleverly hidden by the company.

Among other cool spottings, one of the interesting observations were two Model Y bodies painted in new colors. @sjoerd87777991/Twitter noticed a body painted in a color like Crimson red, which was previously mentioned by the company's CEO Elon Musk. He said it was his favorite color and even drove a Model S painted in that color himself. It is difficult to capture the full depth of color in a photograph, however it is expected to be very impressive.

Another Twitter user @Monst3rProo also noticed a body painted in a new blue color. Of course, the perception of color directly depends on the color rendering of the device's screen, but it seems that this is indeed a very deep blue. On closer look, it seems really voluminous and multifaceted, as Musk previously mentioned.

In addition to these two colors, Giga Berlin is also expected to offer vehicles painted in khaki or similar to this color. While Tesmanian has not yet noticed any mention of a body painted in this color during the Giga Berlin tour, it seems that it might still be offered.

In mid-February, Sr. Recruiter Gigafactory at Tesla, Lydia van de Laar, posted a photo on LinkedIn that appears to show paint samples for cars that will roll off the Giga Berlin assembly line. Although the post was later deleted, Tesmanian was able to save the published photo, which shows that one of the samples is painted in khaki.

Elon Musk first mentioned Giga Berlin's revolutionary paint shop in an episode of Third Row Tesla Podcast. He seemed very excited about it. He told the members of Third Row that Giga Berlin's paint shop would add three layers of paint to the cars the factory produced.

“In order to get dimension on paint, you really need multiple layers. We’re going to do this in Berlin for the first time. If you get dimension, there’s something called flop, where you see the change in color with curvature,” said Musk. “If you can do something like lay down a gloss layer, then lay down a layer with color tint, then lay down another gloss layer, you can get kind of a 3D feeling to the paint. It just pops. It's so much better than anything else."
