Tesla electric car assemblies in Texas and Germany started working with a small time gap in the spring of this year, and by June the Berlin site was able to reach the weekly release of thousands of Model Y electric vehicles. The fourth quarter of Tesla opened up a statement about the ability to produce 2,000 electric crossers each week in Germany. By the end of the year, this number would have increased to 5,000.
Overcoming the important milestone in the expansion of production in Germany, the company dedicated a photograph in which employees of the Berlin company pose around a conditional 2,000-dollar copy of Tesla Model Y collected during the week away. As reported the previous day, the company is expected to release 495,000 electric vehicles of Model Y and Model 3 in the current quarter, so the German site should make a significant contribution to this goal, although a significant part of the workload may come to Shanghai.
The increase in electric car production in Germany will reduce car exports from China, which in today ' s logistics environment should reduce the pressure on European market supplies. Formally, the Tesla plant in Berlin is technically capable of producing 100,000 electric vehicles a year, and at this level of productivity it has reached less than ten months of its operation. Last month Tesla reported that the Texas plant released its 10,000-mile electric car, but how many cars it now collects a week, is not specified. Most likely, the new US site is not so far behind German, and Tesla ' s intentions to increase the volume of vehicles in Texas are also reflected in the fact that it now uses not only advanced batteries of 4680 size, but also more mature 2,170, which are more likely to increase in quantities.
