Tesla Gigafactory Berlin has achieved a new milestone Giga Berlin has successfully produced 4,000 Model Ys in a week, according to a recent announcement from the electric vehicle maker’s official social media account for Europe.
With its most recent milestone, Giga Berlin has achieved a run-rate of 208,000 Model Ys annually. That’s pretty impressive for a facility that has battled adversity and red tape for years. Overall, Giga Berlin’s overall ramp up is going well.
Gigafactory Berlin and Giga Texas were opened a few weeks apart. This suggests that Giga Texas’ vehicle production will reach 4,000 Model Ys per week in the near future. Once this milestone is achieved, the two new factories could contribute more to the company’s totals.
With the 4,000 Model Y milestone reached per week, Giga Berlin will continue its operations until it reaches its next target. The target is likely to be production of 5,000 Model Ys per week, which would translate into a run rate of around 260,000 vehicles per year.
Giga Berlin is a bit special among Tesla’s vehicle production facilities. It is equipped with the company’s most advanced paint shop, which allows the factory to produce two exclusive colors Quicksilver and Midnight Cherry Red that are not available anywhere else. Both the paint options are arguably the best that Tesla offers today.
Similar to other Tesla factories, Giga Berlin is expected to produce both vehicles and batteries. But according to earlier reports, Tesla is only producing individual components at the plant’s battery facility for now. Brandenburg’s Economics Minister Jörg Steinbach (SPD), however, noted that Giga Berlin’s battery plant is already buzzing with activity.
Steinbach had previously stated The Building Is Buzzing It’s Full of What’s Built on the Spot as an opening act makes full use of this building.
