Elon Musk Greets Crowd in German at Tesla's Berlin Factory Party

Elon Musk greeted the crowd with a message in German as he signaled the potential start of production at Tesla’s new factory near Berlin in style over the weekend, inviting thousands of people to a one-day festival at the site.

The party, which Tesla called the “Giga Berlin-Brandenburg County Fair”, had live music from techno DJs, impressive lightning coils, giant balloon robot figures, and a ferris wheel.

Speaking at the event, Musk said he expected production to start at the “gigafactory” before the end of the year. However, the plant is still subject to final approval, German reports said. Credit: Esther Kokkelmans via Storyful
