Hi,


During the Q3 call, Elon said that the location of Gigafactory Europe will be announced before end of 2019. Given the speed ot Gigafactory Shanghai, could Tesla have GF Europe up and running in a year?

In that case, Tesla cold decide to produce all Ys for Europe in Europe, as the Y is not planned until 2021 anyway,

What do you think?


Best,

Daniel

When do you want it? A European Gigafactory isn't going to get built overnight and when it does, what model or models will be the first off the production line? My guess will be Model 3s for a year or so. I would think european made Model Ys are 4-5 years out.

I'm having trouble envisioning a Gigafactory being built as quickly in Europe as it was built in China. I suspect there will be more bureaucracy to deal with in the European project.

When it's built, though, I suspect that they'll build 3's and Y's at the same time, just like they're going to do here once the Y is released.

The European Gigafactory will take longer. No/less government intervention to assist like in China plus more bureaucracy and regulations. In addition, the unions will play a key role...no escaping unions in Europe.
