Elon Musk has finally shared a render of Tesla's Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg on Twitter. It will produce batteries, power plants, and assemble Tesla Model 3 sedans and a compact Tesla Model Y crossover.
The plans for the construction of Tesla Gigafactory near Berlin became known in the fall of 2019. It was supposed to open in 2021 and become the first Tesla factory in Europe.
However, the electric car manufacturer was faced with an ambiguous reaction of residents and environmentalists. In February 2020, all legal issues were settled, and Tesla began preparatory work. Deliveries of the first cars from the factory are scheduled for 2021. It is expected to produce 150,000 vehicles per year and employ up to 12,000 people on Gigafactory Berlin.
It is not specified who exactly designs Gigafactory 4. The design of the new Gigafactory 4 is very different from that of Gigafactory 1 in Nevada and Gigafactory 2 in Shanghai, which are generally quite similar to each other.
The visualization shows that Gigafactory will have a reception center, water feature or pool, green space, and seating area on an upper floor. Most of the roof is covered with solar panels.
The drone camera video below demonstrates how Gigafactory 4 looks now.
The Gigafactory Berlin will soon join Gigafactory 1 in Nevada, Gigafactory 2 in New York, and Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai, China.
