Tesla's working group in Berlin gets to work

Remind you that earlier this month at the Golden Steering Wheel Awards ceremony, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the Tesla Gigafactory 4 will be built in Germany.
And already in the first half of 2020, Tesla wants to begin construction of its Europe Gigafactory.


A recently formed working group is designed to accelerate this process. The Brandenburg Government Task Force on planning the construction of the Tesla factory in Grünheide near Berlin began work on Friday (November 22). “Let's get started,” said Minister President Dietmar Woidke in Potsdam.

Minister President is pleased that the task force was created so quickly. “Today’s talks have shown that everyone has rallied,” he said after the first meeting. This attitude indicates that the project can succeed very quickly. In addition to representatives of Tesla and Minister President, the meeting was attended by heads of departments of ministries, members of the community and the district.

Tesla representatives presented their plans. Application documents are currently being prepared, after which the schedule should be agreed. According to the State Chancellery, construction is scheduled to begin in the first half of 2020, while the first quarter is under discussion. According to Tesla’s plan, Model Y will be produced in Grünheide in 2021.



Tesla plans to invest about $ 4.4 billion, according to the State Chancellery. It is emphasized that the company, like others, can take advantage of financing opportunities (which amount to approximately $ 330 million).

An area of ​​about 300 hectares, which has a legally sound development plan, has been allocated for the factory. This may simplify other procedures in terms of content and time. For the pollution control procedure, Tesla must submit verifiable documents to the responsible land administration for the environment.

A meeting will be held with the newly created task force, at least once a month. In addition, special working groups should be created, each of which will deal with specific topics, such as approvals, infrastructure or skilled workers. There should also be close contact with local and regional authorities - for example, on permits, infrastructure or skilled workers.
