Some six months after starting production at its new plant near Berlin, US electric carmaker Tesla is now making 2,000 cars per week at the site.
Similar to when it reached the 1,000-target in June, the company tweeted a photo of employees next to a Tesla at the Grünheide plant to mark the achievement. “2k Model Y built at Giga Berlin this week,” it said.
The car factory in Grünheide has been producing electric cars since March, the only Tesla plant in Europe so far.
In the long-term, Tesla is planning to produce 500,000 cars annually at the facility with 12,000 employees and is still expanding operations.
The construction of a battery factory on the site is also under way.
According to information obtained by dpa, the target for the first quarter of 2023 is 5,000 vehicles per week.
