The New Tesla Giga Berlin Factory Has Now Started Its production: Tesla Gigafactory Berlin Brandenburg which has been under construction for over 2 years is now completed and opened. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla company is also visited there in this Opening Ceremony.
When Brandenburg’s Office of the Environment finished online meetings about Giga Berlin’s full approval last year. There are more than 800 objections discussed during the meeting. After the process, Brandenburg’s Economics Minister Jörg Steinbach (SPD) stated that he was confident that Giga Berlin would produce its first Model Y by the end of 2021.
But at last, the production started in March 2022. This is a very joyful moment for all those European who loves Tesla Cars.
Now before we talk further about the New 2022 Model Y have a look at this New Tesla Giga Berlin Factory. Where it is located, the area it covers, what it will produce, and more. So, let’s see what it is?
Tesla Giga Factory Berlin
Tesla Giga Berlin is located in Grünheide, Germany in Europe. The area in which the factory was made is around 3 square kilometers. Gigafactory Berlin Brandenburg will be the first location in Europe to manufacture cells in-house together with electric vehicles.
Giga Berlin Factory will manufacture batteries, battery packs, powertrains, and seats with work including casting, stamping, painting, drivetrain assembly, and final assembly of Model 3, Model Y, and future models with an annual capacity eventually reaching 500,000 cars.
Initial production will be of the Tesla Model Y. The main thing here is what is the cost for the production of this Factory? So, the expected cost for the factory is around 4 billion euros. Tesla also claims that by the end of the first half of 2022, it is expected to produce around 30,000 cars in the Giga Berlin.
With the increase in speed of production Tesla has revealed by the way of the Gigafactory Berlin Brandenburg County Fair that the main Model Y production line is able to manufacture one car body every 45 seconds. That is not the bullets from a machine gun speed of battery cells, but it’s really, really fast.
According to this, the car production in one day can be 1,920. Elon Musk was wrong with his estimate of around 500,000 cars per year capacity. With this speed of one car body in 45 seconds, the company will be able to make as many as 700,000 cars per year, which is initially 200,000 more than that of expected.
The ultimate target of the factory is to make around 10,000 cars per week. Tesla Giga Berlin has an advanced paint shop that Elon Musk has talked about in the past. Once local production starts, Tesla Giga Berlin could then offer new colors, such as the highly anticipated and rumored Deep Crimson Multicoat, Abyss Blue Multicoat, and Mercury Silver Metallic.
This is now all about the Giga Berlin Factory. Now let’s check what is 2022 Model Y is which this factory is going to make.

The Model Y has a range of 326-330 miles. Its top speed is 155mph. There are also so many other features in this car. Let’s discuss some of them. Like every Tesla car, Model Y is designed to be the safest vehicle in its class.
The low center of gravity, rigid body structure and large crumple zones provide unparalleled protection. As it is an SUV, it can be a five or seven-seater with each of the second row of seats that can be easily folded flat to make space for the luggage, furniture, and more.
Tesla Model Y uses dual motors to control the front and rear wheels. Model Y is capable of rain, snow, mud, and off-road. The 2022 Tesla Model Y is gearing up to see a major upgrade. The new chip would basically enable the car to offer a better user experience while other upgrades include a lithium-ion auxiliary battery and laminated glass.

The Tesla company has over 30,000 superchargers all over the world with six new locations opening in the world every week. With these amazing features, the new Model Y will likely start at about $53,000 for a long-range model.
A fully-loaded performance model should top out at around $75,000. We had discussed all the Giga Berlin, at what rate it will produce the model y, and everything about model y. Now, let’s have a comparison between model 3 and model y.
Comparison Between Model 3 and Model Y
Difference between their price, charging, top speed, range, and more. Both the models are strikingly the same but there are certain differences between model 3 and model y, let’s have a look.
- The Model 3 of Tesla comes for a price of 43,000 dollars and the Model Y comes for a price of around 53,000 dollars or more.
