I can't find the article but he also insisted that it be done at least as fast as Giga Shanghai.

SamO, I thought about that too, but I suspect it won't go up that fast, in Germany. Well not specific to Germany but in any other country. It seems the Chinese are very good at building things fast. I could be wrong, but with the German culture/nature being more about being precise, I have a feeling it will take longer.

They're going to be building the Germany factory as the China factory is ramping up AND Model Y production starting. I dont think it'll matter.

They were originally talking about two possible locations for GF4 in southwest Germany. Perhaps the final location near Berlin was chosen because a shorter build out time was negotiated.

Logistics are also a factor not that i know anything about it in Germany. Distance from shipping, ports, airports and the such. Lots of factors could have driven it.

Since the Roadster2 will be able to fly it is important to be near the airport, which it is.
