The factory will be built in the area of Berlin Brandenburg Airport, which is currently under construction and which is expected to open in 2020. We specify that “gigafactory” is the term with which Elon Musk indicates the production facilities of car batteries and cars themselves.
Gigafactory Europe, as Musk called this new factory, would be the fourth company. The first came into operation in Nevada in 2016, the second is located in Buffalo, New York and the third in Shanghai, China, which has not yet been fully completed.
