Will all Ys for Europe be produced in Europe?


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?

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.
