Tesla Inc.’s unconventional CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter yesterday to share some news about the new Tesla Gigafactory in Berlin. Musk’s tweet boasts about the paint shop in the electric vehicle manufacturer’s newest European factory. In the tweet Musk said, “Giga Berlin will have world’s most advanced paint shop, with more layers of stunning colors that subtly change with curvature.”

While the statement is certainly a lofty one, there’s still no telling what the company has in store for its first Berlin-based production facility. Plans are still in the works. As a matter of fact, construction of the facility itself remains stalled. A recent discovery of unfit foundation soil caused Tesla some unexpected problems with the building of Giga Berlin. The local government now requires an updated application from Tesla.
In any case, the claims of the world’s most advanced paint shop are exciting. News on Tesla Giga Berlin comes at a welcome time for the company. Many of Tesla’s operations are impacted by the spread of COVID-19. Updates on European expansion presents even more opportunity for those who are curious about Tesla.
It’s also important to note Elon Musk’s follow up tweet. In it he said, “To be clear, Fremont & Shanghai will also be upgraded over time, but it’s hard to retrofit these improvements to an operating paint shop.”
