Tesla gets permission to build cars in Berlin – but is not allowed to sell them

Tesla may now expand its production in Berlin by two thousand cars, but they may not be sold. The condition needed for full-scale production is delayed.

Tesla will be themselves have told the environmental authority in the state of Brandenburg that the results of the production tests they performed at the factory were not satisfactory, reports the German news agency dpa.

Therefore, the authority has extended the manufacturer’s permit, which was first issued for 250 cars in October, with an additional 2,000 “car bodies”.

As most get Tesla now builds 500 bodies a week, up to a maximum ceiling of 2,000. None of the bodies may be used for cars which are then sold to customers, but they must then be confiscated.

The Tesla factory in Grünheide, named Gigafactory Berlin for its proximity to the German capital, now also has permission to manufacture 6,000 components a week in its press plant, up to a ceiling of 26,000.

Nya The Tesla Model Y must also have been seen regularly on the factory floor, reports the newspaper Tagesspiegel. It is already thought that the factory will manufacture both Model Y and Model 3 for the European market.

However, Tesla is still waiting for the final permit needed from Brandenburg’s environmental authority. In December, the state announced that it had received all the documents needed from Tesla to issue such a permit.

Dietmar Woidke, Brandenburg’s Prime Minister, has also said that a permit can come at the beginning of the year – at any time, in other words.

Until then Tesla will continue to build European-sold Model Y Long Range cars at Gigafactory Shanghai in China instead.
