At the Tesla factory in Grünheide near Berlin, production is to be fully resumed after a production stop. The company announced that the supply chains are intact again and all necessary production parts are sufficiently available.

The US electric car manufacturer stopped vehicle production for almost two weeks in January due to attacks by the Yemeni Houthi militia on international merchant ships. Because the transport routes were longer, components were temporarily missing. Tesla said it continued producing in some areas, carried out maintenance work and trained employees.

The plant in Grünheide was opened almost two years ago. Tesla stated that its goal for the first expansion phase was to build 10,000 cars a week with around 12,000 employees. Most recently, more than 6,000 cars were built per week. According to the company, 12,500 people currently work at the location Brandenburg.
