According to media reports, the upgrade of the Tesla Giga Berlin-Brandenburg plant in Grünheide near Berlin is now complete.
Now, with the upgrade complete, it's expected that the production rate will increase to a significantly higher level than the previously achieved 1,000 units per week.
Tobias Lindh reports in the description of the latest drone flyover video, that the company already produced at the site, a Model Y with a single-piece front casting and a Model Y with single motor (RWD), as well as a Model Y with white interior. Those are signs of progress towards production of all types of the Model Y in Germany.
Not only that. A Model Y with the structural battery and 4680-type battery cell also has been produced (using parts from Texas), while the paint shop is testing new colours: Mercury Silver Metallic and Deep Crimson Multicoat, on top of standard black and white produced initially.
- Deep Crimson Multi-coat (previewed in Elon Musk's personla Model S in 2020)
- Abyss Blue Multi-coat
- Mercury Silver Metallic
We can see test vehicles in the new Deep Crimson Multi-coat colour in the video above (20:18), as well as below (21:51):
New colours are expected to increase interest in Tesla cars, which so far were offered in only five colours, none of which were as advanced as the new ones.
Drive Tesla reports that some of the test vehicles will be sent to the US for validation.
However, only the time will tell when exactly the new colours will be available and at what potential premium cost, over the standard black and white colours.
Below, we attached one more video of the Tesla Giga Berlin-Brandenburg plant:
