Tesla's Berlin super plant, an electric car maker, has yet to get permission to build a battery production plant. Tesla has not applied for permission to build a battery production plant at its Berlin based super plant, the Brandenburg environment ministry said.Earlier, Tesla CEO musk told the European battery conference that Tesla plans to build a battery production plant at its Berlin super factory. The plant is expected to produce more than 100 GWH of batteries per year, and can even be expanded to 200 GWH to 250 GWH in the future.
However, foreign media reports pointed out that the Brandenburg Ministry of environment has not yet received Tesla's application to build a battery production plant in Berlin's super factory.
Tesla Berlin is the company's fourth super factory, with three more in Shanghai, Nevada and buffalo, New York.
Previously, musk tweeted that the plant would be used to produce batteries, power systems and vehicles (starting with model y).
Last week, foreign media reported that the plant has begun to recruit management positions to lead the battery cell production business, including the director of battery cell production and operation, the senior director of battery cell workshop, and the battery cell production engineering manager.
According to foreign media, the battery production plant of Tesla Berlin super factory will produce the 4680 battery released by the company at the "battery day" event on September 22, and the model y is likely to be the first Tesla Model with 4680 batteries and structured batteries made in Germany.
Currently, Tesla has produced the new battery at a pilot plant in Fremont and plans to produce 10gwh annually by the end of 2021. (Fox)
