Teslas Berlin super factory is the companys fourth super factory, with the other three in Shanghai, Nevada and buffalo, New York. The plant plans to start production of electric vehicles from the summer of 2021, and will achieve an annual output of 500000 vehicles as soon as possible.
Tesla seems to have wanted to avoid this kind of bottleneck in car production in the past. Teslas plan is to increase battery production along with car production so that all batteries can be produced locally.
In addition, a German media report said Tesla will produce batteries in GR u00fc nheide, Germany, where the company is building its Berlin super factory.
However, drew Baglino, Teslas senior vice president of power systems and energy engineering, released details of the delay in the production of batteries in Germany, suggesting it was related to a lack of available talent.
Baglino confirmed Tesla will eventually build a battery plant in Berlin. However, it depends on when the company can build a sufficient battery manufacturing team at the new superplant.
In addition, foreign media reported that the high turnover rate may also lead to the companys plan to delay the production of batteries in Germany. (Fox)
