Tesla adjusts Giga Berlin employee mix while maintaining production targets

Tesla’s Giga Berlin is set to undergo some changes in its operations as the automaker confirmed on Thursday it will be hiring fewer temporary workers and eliminating Saturday shifts as the plant exits out of the main production ramp phase. However, despite no longer working on Saturdays and adjusting workforce numbers, Giga Berlin remains on track to meet its production targets.

The comments from Tesla (via Reuters) following an earlier report from Business Insider indicating that Tesla was delaying its goal of producing 6,000 cars per week at Giga Berlin. In March, the plant achieved a production rate of 5,000 Model Ys per week.

As Tesla adjusts its operations at Giga Berlin, it signifies a potential strategic shift for the company. By placing less emphasis on ramping production, Tesla may be aiming to optimize its manufacturing processes, improve efficiency, or allocate resources to research and development.

While Giga Berlin is Tesla’s lone European Gigafactory, that may not be the case for much longer. With plans to announce the next Gigafactory location before the end of the year, countries around the world are doing what they can to attract Tesla’s investment. Among those vying for Elon Musk’s attention are Spain and France, with the former reportedly being in advanced discussions with Tesla, while the latter is meeting with Musk this week to discuss building a Gigafactory.
