    Tesla Officially Launched The Berlin Gigafactory Expansion Plan, Selected 250 Hectares Of New Land

    May 27,2022 | Chloe Lacour

    Tesla has officially launched plans to expand its Berlin Gigafactory, selecting a new 250-acre site and submitting construction plans to the city government.

    Tesla's Berlin plant has started production, but it is still encountering difficulties such as increasing production.

    Tesla's ambitions include more vertical integration aimed at limiting the blow from supply chain issues and aiming to boost production to 1 million vehicles in the future.

    Earlier this month, Tesla had been looking to acquire and acquire a 100-hectare (about 250-acre) parcel of land adjacent to the existing property (existing plant) of the Berlin Gigafactory. At present, the factory covers an area of ​​nearly 300 hectares, and in the past few years, Tesla has been working on the construction of the factory.

    Now, Germany's Berlin TV (RBB) reports that the expansion of the factory has started this week, and Tesla has submitted an application for the expansion construction to the Berlin city government.

    The expansion of the Tesla factory in Grünheide (southeast of Berlin) officially kicked off on Wednesday. According to RBB, Tesla plans to expand its area east by nearly 100 hectares. However, the development plan for the area (Plan B) will have to adjust for this.

    Now, Tesla has submitted an application, and the mayor of Ruenheide, Arne Christiani, confirmed: "The city of Ruenheide has submitted an application and is initiating the Plan B process, just in the current 300-hectare area. In the adjacent area, the aim is to obtain a larger Plan B."

    The city council is expected to discuss the matter as soon as next week. If we believe the mayor, the discussion seems to be taking a form, and future expansions will move forward steadily.

    However, he believes that the expansion plan is different from the first phase of other projects, and formal approval can take a year. At the same time, Tesla is also working on ramping up Model Y production at the plant, but we've heard that there seem to be some major bottlenecks that need to be discussed especially Tesla's new paint shop
