Following the launch of manufacturing facilities in the United States and China, Tesla's next location is apparently in Europe. Reuters and CNBC report that while speaking at an awards ceremony in Germany, Elon Musk announced the company's & # 39; Gigafactory 4 & # 39; will be located in the Berlin area. Musk later tweeted "Giga Berlin", saying that the site "Will build batteries, powertrains and vehicles, starts with Model Y."
This follows today's facilities in Nevada, Buffalo and the latest addition in Shanghai, China. Apparently this one will also include an engineering and design center. Tesla bought a German engineering firm in 2016 to help build the Model 3, and it looks like efforts will grow as it launches the production of the Model Y, and probably the electric "cyber truck" that is expected to be unveiled next week.
