In 2022, the long-awaited “Gigafactory” Tesla opened in Germany – the Gigafactory Berlin is located 35 kilometers from the German capital in Brandenburg. The factory has become the fourth Tesla industrial site in the world and the first in Europe where American electric cars will be produced. The opening ceremony was attended by Tesla CEO and founder Elon Musk and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, as well as distinguished guests, including 30 of the first German-built Tesla buyers.
For the opening of its “Gigafactory,” the U.S. company prepared a spectacular video that allowed everyone to see the new Tesla production facility with their own eyes.
A drone flew over the whole territory of the plant for the filming – starting with a virtual tour of the plant, the drone made its way inside the workshops and ended at the parking lot where the assembled electric cars are stored.
As the drone flew over Gigafactory Berlin, the camera captured stamping presses that create body panels for electric cars, robots that weld bodies, a paint line, as well as final assembly stations, and several areas where Tesla quality is monitored at different stages of assembly.
At the start of production, only the Tesla Model Y crossover will be assembled in Berlin, and by 2025, when Gigafactory Berlin reaches the planned production volume of half a million electric cars per year, the German Tesla model lineup will be expanded.
