Germany’s electric state
Thousands of new jobs in vehicle production will be created by the Tesla Gigafactory in Grünheide. A prospective battery production facility is set to expand the Gigafactory even further. An excellent beginning of a new value chain – value creation with a future!
By producing cathode materials for batteries via BASF in Schwarzheide another global player is part of Brandenburg’s e-mobility value chain. Storage components for lorries are manufactured by Microvast in Ludwigsfelde. And many other companies from the whole spectrum of value creation in electromobility are also here. But it’s not just about cars in Brandenburg – Rolls-Royce is developing a hybrid drive for electric aircraft turbines. So much is possible here!

GIGAFACTORY TO MAKE BRANDENBURG A MOBILITY TRAILBLAZER
The talented individuals working at Tesla shape future mobility from both angles. With autonomous driving and battery-based electric drives, Tesla is a forerunner in the field of electromobility.
Some of this talent will soon be working in Brandenburg too – the new Gigafactory in Grünheide is being built in record time, bringing several thousand jobs with it. And that’s not all. Tesla is already planning the production of bigger and better battery cells in Grünheide too.
Great trip to Germany. Support from government & people is super appreciated!Twitter, 04.09.2020Elon Musk, Co-Founder and CEO Tesla

Lead in Electric Drive
Mercedes Benz will soon be building eSprinters in Ludwigsfelde too. Alongside Charleston in South Carolina (USA) and Düsseldorf, Brandenburg will then be one of the three sites worldwide where the Daimler Group is underlining its “lead in electric drive”, i.e. it’s leadership aim in electric mobility in the vans segment.
Around 50,000 of the so-called open model series of the conventional Sprinter (chassis, flatbed, traction head) roll off the line each year.
„By building the eSprinter here in Ludwigsfelde we’ll be embracing a new technology that will secure our factory’s future.“Markus Keicher, Factory manager and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Ludwigsfelde GmbH

Demand is rising, fast. There’s a secure future in producing batteries as a storage medium for electrical vehicles. Brandenburg supports companies who want to enter this market and be part of Germany’s future mobility.
BASF in Schwarzheide
In February 2020, BASF Schwarzheide GmbH announced a new production site for cathode active materials. The plan is to annually produce batteries for some 400,000 all-electric vehicles in Schwarzheide.
Microvast in Ludwigsfelde
US battery manufacturer Microvast is investing around 43 million euros in its European headquarters in Ludwigsfelde or fast-charging battery packs. Needing only 15 minutes to reach full charge, they will power future transporters, lorries, sports cars and off-road vehicles.
Battery module production will be fully automated and based on individual customer requirements at our Brandenburg factory. The ’new silk road’ rail connection from China to Europe, means that we can bring the cells directly to Brandenburg.
We want to transport our cells using as little CO2 as possible, and we want to produce our battery packs sustainably too. On top, Brandenburg offers many advantages when it comes to renewable energies.Sascha Kelterborn, SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT AND MANAGING DIRECTOR MICROVAST
