Tesla has announced that it has reached a new production milestone at its Gigafactory Berlin. The American manufacturer exceeds 5000 units per week in Germany.
It was through a tweet showing video images of production in its Gigafactory Berlin that the firm announced the good news. The German factory of Elon Musk’s company now reaches a production of 5,000 cars per week.
This is an objective that the manufacturer sets itself in each of its factories, generally within a period equivalent to one year. After launching production at the end of 2021 in Grünheide, Tesla hoped to reach 5,000 weekly units by the end of 2022.
Finally, it is in March 2023 that the company will have succeeded, 14 months after the launch of production in Berlin. The goal was ambitious on the part of the company for its fifth factory, in the face of the various shortages suffered in 2022.
At the end of 2022, the pace was 3,000 cars rolling off the production lines every week. By February 2023, the manufacturing speed had progressed, reaching 4000 weekly units. The pace therefore continued to increase at a constant speed until the end of the current month, until the announcement of the accomplished objective of the electric car manufacturer.
