6,000 vehicles are produced every week at the German Tesla factory in Grünheide (Brandenburg). Apparently there is no longer enough space in the Tesla factory for unsold electric cars, which is why thousands of vehicles are being taken to a secret ex-military airport.

The electric cars are to be brought to a former GDR military airport in Neuhardenberg by hundreds of car transporters per day. The “Berliner Zeitung” reports about this, which followed the car transporters.

Since there is no more space at the factory in Grünheide, CEO Elon Musk’s company is transporting the cars to Neuhardenberg, 60 kilometers away, every day from morning to evening. There will be space for up to 5,000 vehicles.

“We counted 40 car transporters per hour in the village, 300 to 400 trips a day,” a resident from the Gusow-Platkow community told the “Berliner Zeitung”. Mayor Mario Eska from the SPD says: “We hope that Tesla will soon move to the former Fürstenwalde airfield. But that is not legally possible at the moment.”

According to Tesla, the former GDR military airport will be used for sorting the vehicles and the subsequent delivery. The company is also always checking other locations, but so far without success.

Most recently, the residents of Grünheide voted against expanding the Tesla factory in a citizen survey. Much to the annoyance of Gernot Schmid, the district administrator of Märkisch-Oderland, “We are paying the price on our streets for not expanding the Tesla factory!”

Since the introduction of citizens’ money, there has been the assertion that social assistance is more worthwhile than working. Instead of cutting aid, a significant increase in the minimum wage would make full-time jobs more worthwhile again, at least the SPD is convinced.

How should we deal with the people from Ukraine who end up with us as war refugees? Should they continue to receive immediate citizenship benefits like they do now, or should they initially be treated like asylum seekers? Here the father of a Ukrainian family who has been living in a large northern German city for a year and a half has his say.
