A German court has stopped work at the site of Tesla’s first factory in Europe due to environmental concerns.
The Higher Administrative Court for Berlin-Brandenburg ordered Tesla to stop clearing trees until the court can consider an environmental group’s appeal.
A lower court told Tesla last week that it could clear the trees as it tries to ready ground for the factory build. However, a group called Green League Brandenburg appealed, saying the factory could potentially pollute the area.
Tesla’s factory near Berlin will manufacture both batteries and cars, starting with the upcoming Model Y SUV. The company hopes to open the factory next year.
