Elon Musk announced during a awards ceremony in Germany on Tuesday and tweeted that Tesla will build its fourth Gigafactory In Berlin, Germany, to build batteries, power engines and vehicles. This will be Tesla's fourth such project after the former SolarCity plant in Buffalo, Gigafactory Nevada outside Reno (still under construction), and China Gigafactory in Shanghai, which has just started manufacturing its first cars.
This new factory will be located "near the new airport". This probably means close to the Brandenburg Airport, which is scheduled to open next year south of downtown.
"I think Berlin has some of the best arts in the world," Musk said as an explanation for his decision to include a future design center in the Berlin project .
"Everyone knows that German engineering is exceptional and that is part of the reason why we place our Germany in Gigafactory," Musk added. In a recent earnings report, Tesla stated that Euro Giga would be operational by 2021.
There is no word yet on whether the new factory will include a tent.
