Tesla’s factory in Germany will feature an upgraded paint shop that Chief Executive Elon Musk said will be “world’s most advanced.”
Commenting on Twitter, Musk said that cars coming out of the factory will receive a high quality paint job with “more layers of stunning colors that subtly change with curvature.”
Customers receiving cars made in China or the U.S. will have to wait for the new paint until Tesla’s existing factories can be upgraded.
“It’s hard to retrofit these improvements to an operating paint shop,” Musk said on Twitter.
Tesla has traditionally been conservative about paint color offerings, as it tries to reduce complexities during ordering and manufacturing. For instance, the Model 3 comes standard in Pearl White Multi-Coat and any other color is an additional $1,000.
Musk has hinted that the company anticipates rolling Model Ys off the line in Berlin in about a year, so it will be some time before we see those layers of stunning colors in the sunlight.
