SMM: according to reports, on Sept. 3, Tesla CEO Elon Musk (Elon Musk) said that Tesla will use the Berlin Super Factory in Germany to demonstrate a completely different mode of car production, as well as the production process of electric car batteries and battery packs.

In a Youtube video released by Tobias Lindh, Musk said in the Brandenburg Gruenheide, where the Berlin factory is located, "this will be the first change in the design of the core structure of the car." This is a big deal for production, engineering and design. " More information will be announced on Battery Day on September 22.

Musk said that Tesla's rapid construction of the Berlin superfactory is to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy, not just to produce cars, and he believes that companies like Tesla must speed up their actions for the sake of climate change. "I think we may produce batteries, cells and other products in this factory, which will be beneficial to the fixed storage of wind and solar energy," he said. The sustainable energy future requires three elements: sustainable energy production, sustainable energy storage, sustainable vehicles, namely electric vehicles, and, ultimately, electric aircraft. " Tesla, which received a license to trade electricity in Western Europe, has begun investigating whether German consumers are willing to use electricity from Tesla's cars.

In addition, Musk said that "Germany is great" and was satisfied with the progress of the Berlin superfactory, praising the quality of local engineers, saying that Tesla would need to recruit a large number of staff. "in the Berlin factory, we will produce cars, but we will also do some original engineering and design work. Frankly, it will be better than American factories.

Tesla plans to produce a new version of the crossover Model Y at the Berlin plant. The factory will have a state-of-the-art car painting workshop and the company hopes to have a color laboratory. Musk said he wanted to build a large Rave immersive virtual simulation system on the roof of the new plant. "it will be an interesting place to work and a cultural need for the company," Musk said.
