Tesla Giga Berlin currently manufactures Model Y electric crossover. The Tesla Giga Shanghai manufactured made-in-China Model 3 and Model Y cars too, are sold in Germany. Apart from that, Tesla also imports the Model X and Model S cars from US plants. Besides selling the made-in-Germany cars in the country, Tesla also exports these cars to other European countries. However, with the plan to double the EV sales in Germany, we might see the automaker emphasising more on the German market than other European countries.

Meanwhile, Tesla has further reduced the delivery waiting period for the Model Y and Model 3 electric cars in China. From a minimum waiting period of six weeks, it has now come down to one week. This came as a third such reduction from Tesla of waiting period before delivery of the cars in China. This means Tesla's Giga Shanghai is focusing more on he Chinese market. Hence, Giga Berlin is left with the option to increase production as well as Tesla's US manufacturing facilities too have to ramp up production and exports of the made-in-US cars to Germany in an attempt to achieve the goal.
