Tesla facility Germany

Tesla has a new distribution center in Giengen, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. The facility is centrally situated to serve the whole of Europe.

The facility measures 237,000 square feet and includes offices and space for socialization. Tesla has entered into a long-term lease for the building and will use it to supply parts to the rest of Europe, as reported by eurotransport.de.

The building itself is sustainable, powered by solar panels, and uses an innovative heating system, aligning with Tesla’s focus as a company. Once it is fully operational it will provide hundreds of jobs for local workers.

The new distribution center is reportedly ideal for battery storage, which is not always possible at other Tesla centers. The Mayor of Giengen Dieter Henle said Tesla’s new facility meets the conditions for safely storing batteries.

Henle also expressed his excitement at having Tesla move into his city.

“Tesla, an e-car manufacturer, has settled into the GIP A7, which has been setting the standard for years. We can be proud that Tesla’s decision to sign a long-term lease at the Giengen plant is a tribute to our innovative strength.”

Canada, too, might be getting a new Tesla facility, judging by job postings.
