Recent announcements have revealed that Tesla Giga Berlin managed to produce 4,000 Model Y crossovers in one week. The milestone appears to have been achieved earlier than scheduled.
Giga Berlin’s accomplishment was highlighted by Tesla over the weekend. With the facility producing 4,000 Model Ys per week, Giga Berlin has achieved a run rate of 208,000 vehicles annually. That’s quite impressive, especially considering the fact that the complex was formally opened less than a year ago.
Citing a production plan for Giga Berlin that it reportedly reviewed, Reuters has noted that the Germany-based electric vehicle production facility was originally expected to hit a weekly output of 4,000 Model Y per week in the week of March 13. The plans reportedly also expected vehicle production to hit 5,000 per week by the end of June 2023.
For context, Giga Berlin was able to hit a production rate of 2,000 Model Y crossovers per week in October 2022 and 3,000 vehicles per week in December 2022. Each milestone allows the facility to get closer to its goal of producing 500,000 vehicles per year, or roughly 10,000 cars per week.
With Giga Berlin now achieving an output of 4,000 vehicles per week, it would not be surprising if Giga Texas follows suit in the near future. It would not be surprising if the facility ends up hitting a weekly output of 5,000 vehicles before the end of the second quarter as well.
Giga Berlin is designed for both vehicle and battery production. Yet as per recent reports, Tesla has focused its resources more on developing Giga Texas’ battery facility instead, at least for now. That being said, Brandenburg Economics Minister Jörg Steinbach (SPD) explained earlier this month that while full battery production is not being done at the Giga Berlin complex, the facility’s battery plant is already operational. In this sense, the minister noted that the facility is already well advanced.
