"Giga Berlin", That’s all Elon Musk wrote on Twitter before he supposedly offered to double Bitcoins there. In addition the glittering billionaire posts a computer graphic probably of the future area of the Gigafactory in Grunheide.
The picture shows a closed low-rise building on 300 ha in the middle of forest. Above the entrance there is a terrace with a swimming pool. It is questionable where the trees on the cleared site are supposed to come from; not visible are the parking lots of the 12.000 employees planned to build the Model Y electric SUV there next year.
Permission ahead of time
Tesla recently received permission from the Brandenburg State Office for the Environment for initial foundation and other work. However, you do so at your own risk, as the Gigafactory permit is still pending; objections are possible until September 3. September.
Tesla’s model range
Tesla unveiled the cyber truck at the 2019 LA Auto Show.
Since the end of June, Tesla’s borse value has risen massively, becoming by far the most highly traded automaker in the world. In the second quarter, the company got rid of many more cars than expected. Unlike its competitors, which are struggling with closed dealerships and customers stuck at home, Tesla is relying on online sales and is barely keeping up with production and delivery due to the large number of pre-orders.
