Over in Brandenburg, Germany, Tesla's plant is producing an impressive 4,000 cars per week, ahead of schedule. This output amounts to one-third of the Model Y output from Tesla's Shanghai plant. It's worth noting that the maximum capacity planned for the Brandenburg plant is a staggering 500,000 cars per year, nearing 10,000 per week. Moreover, Tesla has begun assembling batteries in Germany that will soon be used in vehicles produced at the plant. However, the company recently announced that it will focus on cell production in the U.S. due to Inflation Reduction Act incentives. Additionally, Tesla is preparing to produce cell components, such as electrodes, some of which will be sent from its site in Gruenheide, Germany to the U.S.
