According to RBB, the start of production of the Grünheider Tesla factory is delayed again. According to Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg research, Tesla may not run the first cars for sale from the production line until mid-March at the earliest. The reason: The plant is largely finished, but has not yet been approved. The current delay is due to the fact that the authorities are still examining the factory’s safety precautions.
Further delay arises because the authorities still have to issue an operating license after approval. Tesla originally wanted to start production in Grünheide last summer. The company did not comment on the expected delay upon request. — RBB reported.
