The new plant is set to be built in Berlin, while Tesla also plans to create an engineering and design center in the German capital. Musk said another factor behind the decision to place it there was due to Germany's engineering prowess — the country is home to two of the world's largest carmakers, Volkswagen and Daimler.
It will be the company's fourth Gigafactory. The original Gigafactory was set up in Reno, Nevada, to build batteries for Tesla's electric cars, while its second U.S. facility was built in Buffalo, New York. It's set to open a new car plant in Shanghai, China, soon.
