Tesla’s layout in Europe European electric car war is about to start

The smooth, fast and efficient completion of the Shanghai Gigafactory has excited the shareholders of Marx and Tesla, as well as the car fans who are holding money to buy. Taking advantage of the enthusiasm to share the big cake in the Chinese market, Musk has set off to the hinterland of European car companies.


At an event in Germany on Tuesday, Musk said Tesla’s next Gigafactory will be in Berlin. This will be Tesla’s fourth Gigafactory. It can be seen from Musk’s Twitter that this factory is still a full-featured factory. In addition to the manufacture of complete vehicles, the new factory will also produce batteries and power components of the vehicle on the spot. Shortly after the news was announced, Tesla’s official website already had a revelation about the recruitment of relevant personnel for Gigafactory 4.

In fact, the news of Tesla’s layout in Europe was revealed as early as last June’s annual shareholders meeting. At that time, Musk revealed that Tesla plans to eventually build 10 to 12 super factories around the world, including China and Europe.

Now that the Chinese factory is about to start mass production, the European market is as attractive to Tesla as China.

In the face of declining sales of new energy vehicles in the middle and high schools and the United States, the Tesla Model 3, which began mass delivery in Europe at the beginning of the year, made the European market the only high-growth market for electric vehicles this year. In September, the sales of electric vehicles in Europe were 49,000 units, a year-on-year increase of 57% and a month-on-month increase of 47%; from January to September, a total of 350,000 units were sold, a year-on-year increase of 37%, of which the Tesla Model 95,000 were newly added. 3 accounted for 63,000 vehicles. It is expected that sales in the European market in 2019 are expected to exceed 500,000 units, a year-on-year increase of 38%.

In this way, even if Germany has a number of car giants such as BBA, Tesla still enjoys its own market. Not long ago, Germany planned to increase the existing subsidy quota for electric vehicles by 50%, up to 6,000 euros per vehicle, extending the validity period of the subsidy policy from the end of 2020 to the end of 2025. And it will invest 3.5 billion euros to build 1 million public charging piles by 2030. It’s all about the rhythm Tesla wants.

Only on November 4, Volkswagen’s first mass-produced pure electric model ID. 3 The Zwickau plant in Saxony, Germany officially rolled off the assembly line, which means that Tesla is about to usher in a counterattack from major traditional car giants.

Musk said: “Everyone knows that German engineering is outstanding, which is why our European factory is in Germany.” At the same time, in addition to the Berlin super factory, Musk also revealed that Tesla will build a Berlin one Engineering and Design Center, he considers Berlin’s process technology to be among the best in the world.
