Tesla Hints at Color Options for Giga Berlin‘s World’s Most Advanced Paint Shop

Tesla Giga Berlin will get the world's most advanced paint shop. Using the new painting technology, Tesla cars will have a special, attractive, and lively look that appears to have demonstrated by a ‘Sr. Recruiter Gigafactory’ at Tesla in a Linkedin post.

Each Tesla factory is modeled on the previous one, but the differences in equipment are impressive. Giga Berlin will have an advanced Paint Shop, which will be able to apply paint in three layers. Several layers of paint give the color a realistic depth, which makes the colors brighter than possible with traditional paint systems. It seems now we can see this for ourselves because Sr. Recruiter Gigafactory at Tesla Lydia van de Laar posted a photo that appears to show paint samples for cars that will roll off the Giga Berlin assembly line.

The depth of colors is simply amazing, you can see how they play and, as it were, brings the figures of cars to life. In addition to the visual characteristics of the paint, everyone noticed that the photo shows new colors.

First of all, we can see the khaki color. This is a completely new color for Tesla and seems to be getting a lot of attention. The Metallic Blue is deep and full of life. In the summer of 2020, a Model S painted in 'deep crimson' was spotted. Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote on Twitter that this is his car, and “it’s a prototype of the color.” It seems that Metallic Red in the photo, dubbed by Musk 'deep crimson,' appears to be the final version of the color that will be used for the paint job.

Earlier, in the spring of 2020, Musk also talked in more detail about the Paint Shop in Giga Berlin and about the properties of colors:
“Something interesting that I’m pretty excited about: the Berlin paint shop is going to have another opportunity for another 3 layers of paint. In order to get dimension on paint, you really need multiple layers. We’re going to do this in Berlin for the first time.”

Giga Berlin's upgraded Paint Shop adds several layers of paint for a unique look, which is almost impossible with traditional painting methods.
“If you get dimension, there’s something called flop, where you see the change in color with curvature.

“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.”

Please note that, on the provided photo, colors may vary depending on the color reproduction of your device. Also, the publication of this photo by Lydia does not mean that these particular colors will be used for painting cars made in Germany, but is only a possible hint.
