Gigafactory Berlin will occupy a total area of 380,000 square meters. The German press agency reported a few days ago that it needed a little less than 41 million euros. The main production building will have a length of 744 meters and a width of 312 meters. When it is completed, up to 500,000 Model 3 and Model Y series cars will be produced there annually. For this, about 12,000 new jobs will be created. The Gigafactory will initially produce about 150,000 cars a year.
The Tesla Council has not yet signed a sales contract with the country. Steinbach said Tesla should do this by the end of this week. He expects the site to be ready for construction in mid-March after clearing 90 hectares of low-quality forest. A 300-hectare site is currently searching for ammunition from World War II. The land, for the future Tesla factory, in the municipality of Grünheide, is already defined as an industrial zone.
