WEBFI-TECH-BREAKING! Tesla Giga Berlin Is Permitted To Build 2,000 Test Vehicles

Instead of the expected final approval for Giga Berlin, Tesla has received another advance approval for its Gigafactory in Grünheide near Berlin to build 2,000 test vehicles. This emerges from a decision by the Brandenburg State Office for the Environment, which a local observer published on Friday.

Accordingly, shortly before Christmas, the company applied to be allowed to expand the tests and trial runs of its systems allowed in October significantly beyond the previous level – with success: After the first 250, Tesla is now allowed to build another 2,000 complete Model Ys in Grünheide.

Shortly before Christmas, the Brandenburg state government had all the documents it needed for Tesla Giga Berlin’s final approval. A senior official from the Ministry of the Environment confirmed this in the state parliament this week and said that the authorities were now about to begin the final phase of their decision. However, he also informed that Tesla was not yet satisfied with the results of its previous factory tests and had therefore requested more preliminary tests at the same time.

With the new decision they were allowed. Each of the 13 tool sets in the press shop is allowed to produce another 2,000 parts, in the body shop they can be put together, given color in the paint shop and the result tested in the final assembly. The Giga presses for the rear and possibly also the front frame elements of the Model Y are not mentioned in the approval, but a pre-approval from the end of October should still be sufficient for them: At that time, the country had allowed Tesla to produce 20,000 parts with the large ones Manufacture die casting machines.

    It's nice to build。We will judge and decide whether to allow operation after the construction is finished。What an irresponsible German country。Wait half a year, what is a test permit for ⁇ 2000 cars?。If you build a factory in Germany, you will definitely go bankrupt before you operate。

  • James Irwin on January 8, 2022

    They are running out of excuses for delaying the factory. Pretty soon VW, Benz and BMW will have to play ball.

    This is not about environment. It is about giving approval for competitor. Brandenburg State Office for the Environment should be ashamed.

    I bet a fakeout in many ways. Just a way to push initial cars as they know it’s not being opened tomorrow so they can have more cars. And experience ramping and good press

    Elon is smarter then any of us. Psychology of getting them use to Tesla running little by little…..

  • Lee Swee Huat on January 9, 2022

    Might as well use to extra delayed time to improve build quality, in the process of preparing for the ramping up of vehicle production. Might as well get interim approval for partial production, as the actual vehicle production ramp-up process will need time anyway.

    permit for test production: allows exceptions from legally required fire and environmental safety measures
    permit for final production: allows no thus exceptions
    And those safety measures are not yet all completed. Sprinkler system – maybe? Waste water management – not completed. The emergency switching in case of a fire between the infiltration basin and the basin holding back contaminated fire extinguishing water does not look already operational either.
    The final permit/approval will cover the car factory as applied for by Tesla (maybe with some further conditions). But this means Tesla will also need the car factory it applied for.

    Good god Germany. So inefficient. Altered my perception of the country, it’s politics and it’s people.

    Plus trying to get natural gas defined as a renewable green energy. Joke

  • Rick Nash on January 9, 2022

    It'll be February soon and still no final approval but then it will be apparent why. No approval until the plant is unionized.

  • Ben Washburn on January 9, 2022

    I don't see any relationship between Tesla needing to build more test vehicles and the German government continuing to withhold final approval. IMO using Tesla's requirement to build test vehicles is yet another excuse for continuing permit delays is misleading. There are two separate unrelated issues–Tesla needs to fine tune production quality, and Germany needs to grant a full approval. A limited approval for 2,000 test vehicles is meaningless; in terms of the only update that matters, the update is there is no update and full approval is still pending. All the rest is lipstick on the pig.

    Breaking News: German Bureaucrats seek relief due to heavy workload

    The German Bureaucrats Union have prepared a 12,000 page report on the heavy workload their job entails.

    "We are being overworked!", said the head of the Union. "We need to slow down."

    The proposal is all about setting more realistic expectations.

    Kindergarten approvals will now take 10 years instead of the current 1 year.

    New office space approval now have to go through 1,560 inspections by trained staff and need 4,537 clearances.

    However the biggest proposed change is to force typing speeds to be reduced to 9 words per minute.

    The bureaucrats argue that 9 words per minute is better for a work-life balance.

    We need to go slow and enjoy our work-life balance. 6 months of paid vacation is not enough.

    The report proposes that schools should train students to type a maximum of 9 words per minute.

    In case the student doesn't comply, the teachers are instructed to yell "Nine, Nine, Nine, Nine !!!!" at the students.
