But no doubt the hardcore pro-Brexit people will be leaving some comments about how Musk is using Brexit as an excuse for some reason or another.
What else do we know about Tesla? Musk previously said that he would like the European facility to be operational by 2021. Musk dubbed it a "Gigafactory" because it was created to produce batteries with gigawatt-hours of storage capacity.
In 2018, Brandenburg accounted for only a 2.1% share of the country's GDP, ranking number 11 out of 16 states in terms of gross regional product.
With Musk reportedly aiming to have his factory up and running in Germany in 2021, the electric race between the USA upstart and Germany's legacy carmakers is officially on.
At the time, Tesla outlined plans "to add over 1,000 advanced engineering and skilled technician jobs in Germany over the next two years".
Germany's biggest labor union, the influential IG Metall, welcomed Tesla's plan.
The new German factory could make Tesla one of the largest employers in Berlin.
"The delay to the airport, stemming essentially from a faulty sprinkler system, proves the German love for detail, which could have a cultural clash with a company more accustomed to banana launches (let it rip with the customer) and temporary tented production lines". He called it "a milestone in the expansion of electric mobility and battery expertise".
"In contrast the German government is committing big support for EV in the coming years", said Bailey.
Some 16 large-scale lithium-ion battery cell plants are confirmed or due to begin operations in Europe by 2023. "We're likely to establish a Tesla engineering group in Britain at some point in the future". The Model 3 picked up Germany's Midsize Car of the Year gong at the evening, beating the BMW 3 Series and Audi A3. Volkswagen kicked off mass production of its new ID.3 electric vehicle at its plant in Zwickau, Germany, a few weeks ago, and is pinning its hopes on this little auto becoming the same kind of success story in the reasonably-priced category that the VW Beetle and Golf were in the past.
