E-Mobility and Mobility of the Future in the Spotlight
Tesla's plans to build a large factory for electric cars near Berlin made the spotlight on e-mobility even brighter. In the Gigafactory planned by Elon Musk, the most important Tesla vehicle Model 3 and the planned compact SUV Model Y are to be built for the European market, a total of around 150,000 cars per year. Tesla also plans to set up a development center in Berlin.
