Indeed, the company & agrave; by Elon Musk announced that it has reached the milestone of 1,000 Model Ys produced in a week . With 1,000 units & agrave; per week means that the factory has reached a capacity; annual potential of just under 50,000 cars . We are still a long way from the target of 500,000 cars but the plant is still in an early stage and many aspects of production need to be fixed.
Also, it seems that Tesla had to face some obstacles during this period, including a series of problems with the paint shop . In addition to this, the company & agrave; American, like the other manufacturers, also has to deal with the problem of the supply of components.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE BERLIN GIGAFACTORY
Tesla & egrave; obviously late. Among the difficulties in order to obtain the permits to start production and some technical problems, the construction of the electric cars is not proceeding as originally planned. However, the goal of 1,000 cars per week means that Tesla is gradually solving the main problems. techniques.
With the problem of supplying components, surely Tesla will have to; to face further difficulties over the next few months. However, this new factory, once fully operational, will become very important for the growth strategy of the American car manufacturer.
As we know, the Model Y for the European market will be produced on this site. This means that the constructor will not be; more forced to import them from the Chinese factory (or at least significantly decrease the dependence on this Chinese factory for the European Model Y). In addition, 4680 cells will also be produced within this facility and will be used in many Tesla models in the future.
