Elon Musk recently sent an email to Tesla employees, congratulating them on their hard work this year. According to Elon Musk, Giga Berlin produced nearly 1,000 cars last week, which is a significant milestone as Tesla tries to ramp up production in Europe.
This impressive achievement shows how quickly and smoothly the Giga Berlin production line has gone so far. Giga Berlin had a target production of 200 cars per day, and employees were able to exceed that number almost every day.
Giga Berlin has a long way to go to reach its peak potential with a production of 500,000 cars per year. To reach that peak potential, Tesla is ready to install eight Giga Press machines from IDRA in Phase 1 of Giga Berlin.
Giga Berlin currently only produces the Performance Model Y variant. Tesla also completed production trials for the Long Range model in March before it officially opened.
