Tesla will begin production of the newly launched Model Y in Europe in December. The Tesla boss Elon Musk (50) announced this weekend at a community festival in the nearly completed new plant in Grünheide (D). Around 9,000 residents were able to take a look at Tesla’s first plant outside the USA, which is already in test operation.

The US electrical pioneer is investing a mid-single-digit billion amount for its first European location. In the final stage, around 12,000 employees will build 500,000 electric cars per year, including the required batteries. Tesla also relies on local suppliers – a gigantic business development program for the German state of Brandenburg. With the new plant, Tesla finally wants to enable continuous deliveries in Europe – until now it was heavily dependent on the available transport capacities.
