Tobias Lindh, a drone operator, was one of the people who first spotted the Model Y vehicles at the event. According to a report, there were over 350 Model Y vehicles seen. The footage shows that Tesla’s Gigafactoru in the country has produced hundreds of Model Y vehicles which are all of good quality, most of them are black and some are white.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla Giga Berlin will showcase an advanced paint shop. Colors that the company is expected to release are Abyss Blue, Mercury Silver, and Deep Crimson.
The Model Y vehicles seen at Giga Berlin are most likely test vehicles as Tesla still awaits the final green light from the State Environment Agency. The company received its initial permit from the agency which allows the electronic vehicle maker to manufacture 2,000 Tesla Model Y test vehicles.
Tesla seeks to produce more Model Y test vehicles since “the quality and manufacturing efficiencies required for system and unit acceptance in relation to the operating units mentioned have not been achieved.”
Tesla got the go signal from the agency to produce 500 bodies weekly with a maximum of 2,000 bodies in total. The company is allowed to manufacture 6,000 parts every week in its Giga Berlin’s press shop with a maximum of 26,000 parts in total. Tesla is allowed to paint and assemble the parts they have produced but they are not allowed to sell bodies or parts which are still not approved.
Local reports suggest that Tesla Giga Berlin will most likely be given the final approval and start the production process in mid-March.
