In response to Elon Musk‘s keynote speak on the European Battery Convention, Tesla is planning to construct an enormous battery cell plant on the Tesla Giga Berlin website in Germany, envisioned for over 100 GWh yearly.
Over time, the lithium-ion cell plant may be expanded to 200 and even 250 GWh yearly, which might be the largest battery plant we heard of.
After all, the Tesla could be producing the in-house developed 4680 cells, that can be built-in aspect of the car construction. The European Tesla Model Y was already confirmed to get those cells, however we do not know whether or not it is going to be proper from the beginning of manufacturing in 2021. Tesla presently produced the 4680 cells solely in its pilot facility in California.
We wonder if the preparations for the battery facility already began, as the harvesters recently returned to clear extra space on the Giga Berlin.
Having a probably lower-cost, and extra power dense battery methods (30% without including any new chemistry), would enable Tesla to introduce not solely longer-range BEVs, however presumably additionally extra inexpensive ones to compete for the mainstream clients in Europe.
