Tesla will build ‘modified’ Model Y in Berlin

Tesla will make a new version of the Model Y in the first European factory near Berlin. CEO Elon Musk said this on Thursday during a visit to the factory under construction.

“We are not just going to build a copy of the Model Y, we have completely redesigned the basis of the production process,” says Bloomberg on. Later this month, during Tesla’s ‘Battery Day’, Musk will release more details about the changes. “It is the first time that our platform design has been overhauled,” he also said. Musk already indicated that this makes the European Model Y ‘considerably easier to produce’.

The Model Y was presented in March 2019 and has been delivered since spring. In the Netherlands, customers still have to be patient for the Model Y. The introduction is unchanged in the planning for the beginning of 2021. The car here costs at least € 64,000 for the time being.

The factory in Berlin will be ready in about a year and can then start producing cars. About 500,000 of them can roll off the line every year. Tesla had wanted to build a factory in Europe since 2017 and finally found a suitable location in Grünheide at the end of last year.
