When will the Tesla Gigafactory be operational?
According to the minister, the German Tesla factory could be finished in record time
Tesla opened its new electric car factory in China at the beginning of 2020 after less than a year of construction. For the German plant planned in Brandenburg, many actually assumed a significantly longer time span between the start of construction and completion, for example because of challenges from environmental regulations and protests. According to politics, the local production facility is making very rapid progress so far.
"The goal at Tesla seems to be to undercut the construction time of the Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai again," said the Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy of Brandenburg Jörg Steinbach (SPD) World on sunday. "According to what I have observed, that could definitely work."
Tesla's first European factory - the "Gigafactory 4" - was announced by company boss Elon Musk during a visit to Berlin last November. The dredging work for the foundation of the site southeast of the German capital in the Brandenburg municipality of Grünheide began at the end of May this year, which, according to the report, is considered to be the official start of construction.
In order to break the Shanghai record, construction work must be completed in April 2021. A construction period of eleven months is known for the factory in the Chinese metropolis. Like the new factory in Germany, the plant in the People's Republic is central to Tesla's expansion plans. In this country, the US manufacturer wants to officially hand over local electric cars to customers from summer 2021. First the new mid-range SUV Model Y is to be created, later the mid-range sedan Model 3 and batteries for both models. The capacity is designed for 500,000 electric cars per year.
In the Brandenburg state government, the project, which could create between 10,000 and 12,000 jobs, has high priority, Steinbach explained World on sunday. “The world has changed for us from one day to the next. We are suddenly part of a story, part of the expansion of electromobility in Germany. ”The local construction companies and the authorities were working on the edge of their capacities. "It is a ride on the razor blade and can probably not be repeated indefinitely," said the minister.
According to the Tesla boss, the fact that the construction of the company's fourth large factory is progressing so quickly is also due to the way it is carried out: The German project is progressing "at a seemingly impossible pace," said Musk in late July Twitter. This is particularly successful thanks to the German construction method with prefabricated parts, which is "extremely impressive".
