Following the launch of production facilities in the US and China, Tesla's next location is evident in Europe. Reuters and CNBC announce that while speaking at an awards ceremony in Germany, Elon Musk has announced that the company's "Gigafactory 4" will be located in the Berlin area. Musk later tweeted "Giga Berlin" and said the location "Will build batteries, power engines and vehicles, starting with Model Y."
This follows the current facilities in Nevada, Buffalo and its latest addition in Shanghai, China. Obviously, this will include an engineering and design center. In 2016, Tesla bought a German engineering firm to help build the Model 3, and it looks like those efforts will increase as it launches Model Y production and probably the electric cyberruck, which is due to be revealed next week.
