Tesla chose Brandenburg as a home for its European factory for a number of important reasons. Despite some delays in approving construction, the company remained flexible and made incredible progress only with prior permits. According to the plan, Tesla should start production in mid-2021, and it seems to remain on track to do so. The start of production at the factory is scheduled for late July, at the latest August, Brandenburg officials said.
@alex_avoigt/Twitter reported that yesterday, at a meeting of the Brandenburg Committee on Infrastructure and Regional Planning, infrastructure issues related to the opening of Tesla's factory were discussed. In more detail, they discussed how the workers will get to and from the plant, so as not to negatively affect the congestion of the roads. Member of the Parliament of the state of Brandenburg from the electoral group BVB/FREE, who is also a member of the Oder-Spree district council and councilor in Schöneich Dr. Phillip Zeschman said Tesla has confirmed that production of Giga Berlin is set to start at the end of July but no later than August. This is the first official timeline since the company announced it was slated to start production in mid-2021.

Tesla is currently awaiting a final environmental building permit. All the progress that has been made so far has been done with only a few prior permits. The company recently applied for two more. Tesla wants to remove topsoil from newly harvested pine trees. Another permit would allow the company to lay underground lines for the factory.
