Tesla to Host Town Hall at Giga Berlin to Detail Environmental Progress

Tesla plans to host a second event at its new factory in Germany, just around six months after the plant opened.

According to Reuters, Tesla is hosting a town hall event at its Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg on Sunday to inform locals about its environmental footprint (via @Berlinergy).

The Grünheide, Germany plant will host the event from 1000 to 1700 CET, and Tesla employees will be on-site to discuss water protection and other environmental factors.

Additional topics are set to include the factory’s impact on road and rail infrastructure and other methods of transport, forest conversion, battery cell production, the Brandenburg works council and the company as a local employer.

The town hall event is also set to include activities for children and families, and test drives with Tesla vehicles.

A report from a few weeks ago noted that Tesla’s Giga Berlin is already producing around 1,900 Model Y units weekly and is testing new colors at its state-of-the-art paint shop.

As of early last month, Tesla had reached 5,000 employees and the automaker added a second production shift.

Upon opening, Tesla held a County Fair event at Giga Berlin, as was highlighted in a 4K video shared on YouTube. The event also included machines in action, tours, test drives and a dance party, and it was only open to local residents.
