Tesla Berlin Gigafactory has modular walls and many pillars built. This is three months faster than the first walls being put up at the Shanghai Gigafactory. If Tesla builds Gigafactory Berlin at the same speed as Shanghai then there will be vehicles delivered April-July 2021. If Tesla builds Gigafactory Berlin three months faster than Tesla Shanghai then there will be vehicles delivered Jan 2021. If Tesla builds Gigafactory Berlin six months faster than Tesla Shanghai then there will be vehicles delivered October 2021.
To match pace with Tesla Giga Shanghai, the Tesla Berlin Grünheide site would have to see the main factory building structurally sound by end of September 2020, body-in-white pilot production by end of January 2021, and initial deliveries by end of April 2021.
Prefabricated construction is being used in Berlin for faster construction.
Tesla has gotten to leveling of the construction site in Texas.
Giga Berlin will come together at an impossible-seeming speed. The prefabricated construction method in Germany is extremely impressive.

@tobilindh made this pretty great summary of progress compared to Giga Shanghai
The more factories Tesla builds, the more efficient construction gets. Can’t wait to see how Giga Austin compares pic.twitter.com/EwnNCnKOxK
