US carmaker Tesla plans to employ up to 10,500 employees for its first factory in Europe, industry insiders told the German press office, dpa on Saturday, fewer than those listed on the application for environmental permits.
The factory’s first European electric car manufacturer is currently being built in the state of Brandenburg, northeast Germany, near Berlin.
Tesla aims to produce 500,000 vehicles as quickly as possible after the planned opening of Gigafactory in July 2021.

However, these figures differ from those recorded in the company’s application for environmental permits, which mention creating up to 12,000 full-time positions, including some apprenticeships.
Tesla’s final environmental permit is still pending, but car makers have begun to prepare building a site in Grünheide, east of Berlin, at its own risk.
Critics say the plant will have a negative effect on the environment. Citizens can object to the project until September 3. So far, 373 mind has been submitted.
Action group spokesman “Against Gigafactory Grünheide” Frank Gersdorf said, “All projects have the wrong location: water protection area, drinking water protection area, landscape protection area – In the midst of nature that was previously intact. “
