The scene should be meticulously planned: last weekend, according to numerous online media reports, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was scheduled to visit the German Gigafactory again. From the United States of America He should arrive by plane as usual, only to be transported from there in a small caravan with two Ys to the new factory in Grünheide near Berlin. On the one hand, this promised the best illustrated material, and on the other hand, perhaps news of the official start of the Giga Berlin – but Musk did not come. When it was then said that the visit had been postponed for a few days, he explained that a visit to the Giga factory was not planned until February.
Musk confirms his visit to Germany
It would be difficult to clarify whether the plans reported for this past weekend or this week actually existed at all. Anyway, it’s clearly out of date: he can’t comment on every rumor, but it’s not true, the Tesla boss wrote on Twitter for an article about it. But he not only denied, but also revealed new information about his travel plans: “I’m on my way to Berlin in mid-February.”
Thus, another visit to Germany by Musk can be considered confirmed – and this can certainly be connected with the start of production of the Model Y series at the German plant. All documents needed for final approval were available shortly before Christmas, the Brandenburg state government announced. Even the country’s Minister of Economy, who had tried to do this several times before, did not make any predictions on this issue. but that Tesla’s action should be “on the last meters”., as he said last week.
I can’t comment on every rumor, but it’s not true. Headed to Berlin mid-February, not this week.
– Elon Musk January 17 2022
At the beginning of Model Y production for customers – as a test Tesla is currently allowed to produce another 2,000 of them, but do not sell it – mid-February will be appropriate. The same goes for the fact that a more specific delivery date for the Model Y Performance in Europe has been set since last week: Previously, ‘early 2022’ was in the configurator, now March is mentioned there – and an observer discovered in the site’s source code indicates web to Variable performance then from the Gigafactory near Berlin you have to come. This is also supported by the fact that it should only be available in white or black in March and in other colors only in May.
Tesla chief can wait for action
Of course, Tesla’s production and CEO travel plans can change — just as there’s no guarantee that the last few yards of the approval process will be smooth sailing. For example, it will be exciting again shortly before Musk’s now announced visit: According to reports, the Administrative Court in Frankfurt/Oder wants to have one on February 11 Associations suing Tesla’s increased water production negotiate. According to the Minister for the Environment of the State of Brandenburg, the decision has no direct bearing on the possibility of its approval. But before the topic of boring water is off the table at least at first, the Tesla boss may not want to start his token tour of the Model Y.
