Tesla is a well-known name in the world of automobiles. Recently, Tesla received a green signal with full approval to start production and deliver cars to its customers at Giga Berlin. The approval by the relevant authorities was received after months of delay and was expected in the summer of 2021. In addition to this, other factors such as the Covid 19 pandemic, complications with the supply chain, and clashes with multiple environmentalists also delayed the approval to begin production and delivery of cars.
Obtaining Effective Approvals For Proceeding With Production Was Difficult
Obtaining the necessary approvals certainly was not an easy task. Instead, it came with over 300 different conditions and requirements. Tesla had to agree to all of these various conditions and needs. The requirements were on subjects of groundwater protection, species protection measures, and more. Indeed, most of them were part of the environmental variety.
Environmental Regulation Hurdles
The environmental clearance was received on 4th March 2022. The support is followed by a license obtained from the Brandenburg state environment office. Tesla waited many months for this plant to begin operating as German engineering is outstanding in framing up the cars.
The Approvals Help Tesla to Ramp Up
As the company has received the official notice from the local German authorities, it now means that they can begin production and deliver the different Tesla vehicles to their respective customers. In addition to this, the company has also announced its schedule prior.
According to the program, the first deliveries were to occur on the 22nd of March. Tesla has to organized an event with the local officials, some employees, and the CEO Elon Musk.
A few customers will be especially grateful because of their special deliveries. Elon Musk will deliver the first 30 himself. The lucky car owners will be able to meet Musk and get their Tesla!
Giga Berlin will speed up its production for the upcoming cars to have them on time as promised to the customers. The firm aims to have 1,000 cars produced per week in April and seeks to continue to build up the level of production over time. The new facility could be more significant as Tesla does have permits to manufacture battery packs there as well.
We could potentially see over 400,000 cars produced at the facility by next summer.
Don’t forget about Giga Texas and the fact that it will be ramping up production further when it opens soon.
