Elon Tweets that Tesla Will Build Gigafactory in Berlin

Elon has tweeted that Tesla will build batteries, powertrains, vehicles starting with Model Y in a new Gigafactory in Berlin.

Tesla has indicated that the European gigafactory should be operational in 2021.

Elon Musk was in Berlin at “Das Goldene Lenkrad” Awards. Tesla Model 3 won the midsize premium category, obtaining more points than any car in any other category.

Elon took the opportunity to announce the GF4 would be in the “Berlin Area” and also announced a planned R&D center, obviously taking advantage of the German Engineers who are presumably watching.
