In his response, however, Musk also noted that the large number of new technologies used in berlin’s super-factories meant significant production risks could arise.
Once the new technology is proven at the Berlin superstring, it will be used at other Tesla plants. Musk said in his response that the Fremont and Shanghai super-factories will be adopted within two years when the new technology is validated.
Tesla’s superstell in Berlin, announced in November, is currently under construction and production of model Y is scheduled to begin delivery in 2021.
