The US electric car manufacturer Tesla now employs more than 10,000 people in its factory in Grünheide. The German Press Agency learned this from business circles on Monday. The company wrote on Twitter that 4,000 cars are currently being built per week. That's around 200,000 a year.
The goal of the first expansion phase has not yet been reached: Tesla wants to produce half a million cars a year in Grünheide with 12,000 employees. The company had already announced that ramping up production would take time. Since March 2022, Tesla has been producing electric cars in its only European car factory to date.
