Musk presented with cardboard cutout of himself by fan

Musk has visited the factory site in Gruenheide several times, this time there are no meetings with politicians planned, instead Musk met fans outside the factory grounds, one of whom had brought a cardboard cut out to be signed, saying he had toured Europe in Teslas to prove one can.

Tesla is the world's largest electric car builder and the Gruenheide site is the company's first in Europe.

The company is still waiting for final construction permission for the factory as well as for the battery plant. So far it is unclear when this will be provided.
