Action spotted at Giga Berlin as Tesla begins testing production lines

The fact that Tesla is progressing at Giga Berlin is a good thing. They couldn’t afford to wait much longer if they wanted a chance to meet the schedule for the release of cars like the Model Y.

It’s just a test

The start of testing is certainly something to feel good about, but it is by no means an indicator that Tesla is so close to starting production. It’s unclear how far Tesla is from starting production. One of the reasons Tesla is not producing anything now is that the auto parts used in testing cannot be used in the future.

Model Y body is used

The body of the Model Y is taken through Tesla’s production line to see how the different machines work. The problems will then be resolved before production starts. Tesla can start mass production immediately after receiving its final environmental permit. A series of robots are involved in this production process and the Giga press is also tested.

Tesla still needs approval to start production

Elon Musk expressed his frustration with the German bureaucracy. Musk wants to get into production, and he thinks regulators are jumping him through unnecessary hoops. It’s unclear when Tesla will get the final green light to start production, but since Tesla is able to test their equipment now, that means they may be able to start taking cars off the assembly line sooner. possible.

Estimate when Tesla can start production

Anyone can guess when production can finally start. If things continue to move steadily forward, Tesla may even be able to start production in September 2021. One scenario showing the other extreme is that Tesla runs into a bunch of roadblocks and production is pushed back to Q2 of 2022. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect production to start in November or December 2021.
