Tesla CEO Elon Musk had hoped to have a groundbreaking ceremony at the site in March, but the coronavirus pandemic put a quick stop to those plans.

With the arrival of the first pile driver at the site this week, the automaker may soon be holding its groundbreaking, but with less fanfare than originally planned.

Earlier this month, crews were seen building internal roads at the site, also a good sign of construction beginning soon.

All of the recent activity at the site, along with fears the coronavirus pandemic may delay the planned 2021 opening of the factory, led German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier to recently state he still expects the factory to be completed on schedule.
