FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Tesla (NASDAQ 🙂 CEO Elon Musk has given his German team six months to start production at his belated plant near Berlin, the first gigafactory in Europe, reported the German weekly Automobilwoche Appeal to corporate sources.
A Tesla spokeswoman declined to comment on the report, referring to the automaker’s official statement last month that production at the Gruenheide site began in late 2021.
Tesla originally planned to start production on July 1, 2021, but bureaucracy and the construction of a battery cell factory on the site have delayed the project.
Last month, Tesla criticized lengthy regulatory processes in Europe’s largest economy, stating that its approval framework “directly contradicts the urgency of planning and implementing projects that are necessary to combat climate change.”
