Talking in The Golden Steering Wheel awards Tuesday evening, Elon Musk supported plans for its new mill, which he expects to start by 2021.
“We have decided to place the Tesla Gigafactory Europe from the Berlin region,” he stated, adding:”I come to Berlin a whole lot — Berlin stone!”
At a subsequent interview with commerce magazine Auto Express, the serial entrepreneur stated Brexit had impacted the organization’s decision since it’d”made it too risky to place a Gigafactory in the united kingdom.”

Some background information published by Tesla on the new plant said it might create the Model Y and Model 3 and also are a”first stage” for growth plans on the continent.
It is going to also be the organization’s fourth largest battery plant, after two in the united states and one in China.
