Tesla is actively developing a new car production facility in Germany to directly supply its popular electric vehicles to customers in Europe. Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently announced that the first cars built at the new plant will roll off the assembly line as early as next month. The plant will be capable of producing an “impressive” number of vehicles every day.

Musk said the plant could produce up to 10,000 vehicles a day. Tesla is currently awaiting German regulatory approval to begin production at this plant. Although the first cars could roll off the assembly line in Germany as early as next month, Musk has made it clear that it will take some time to reach full-scale mass production.

The Tesla chief also said that by the end of 2022, batch production of batteries will be launched at a nearby plant. Because of this, Tesla has come under attack from eco-activists in Germany who are concerned about the plant’s environmental impact. Musk responded by saying that the plant will use “relatively little” water and that his battery line is sustainable.

At the moment, Tesla is worried about a completely different problem related to the further operation of the plant – it is the ability to hire a sufficient number of workers. The automaker is encouraging people from all over Europe to apply for jobs at the plant.
