This Week in Tesla: Worldwide Tesla Factory Updates, Sentry Mode Helps Solve Another Crime

July 15, 2020 4:44 PM | Stephen Pallotta (Administrator)

Tesla Factory Updates -

Gigafactory Berlin -

In November of 2019, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced plans to build Tesla’s first factory in Europe. The factory will be located just outside of Berlin, Germany, and construction has already entered the first stages. Elon has recently revealed the render of what the new factory will look like once completed. The factory appears to be much more aesthetically pleasing compared to the other plain warehouse designs of Tesla’s other factories. 

Texas Factory -

After acquiring a 2,100 acre piece of land just outside of Austin, Texas, Tesla has just gotten approval from the county regarding their tax incentives. With the amount of jobs that the factory creates, the county is providing massive tax incentives for Tesla to build their factory there. Tesla has ambitious plans for the factory, hoping to move quickly through construction and have a fully functional Model Y assembly line by the end of the year. It is also expected that many, if not all Cybertrucks will eventually be built in the Austin factory. With at least $65 million in tax incentives for Tesla to build their factory there it is an appealing offer, and hopefully Tesla’s ambitious plans for the timeline of the factory come to fruition.


Sentry Mode Helps Solve Another Crime -

Sentry Mode, a feature equipped in Tesla vehicles uses the advanced external camera system to record everything that happens near a parked Tesla with the system enabled. This feature has not only helped Tesla owners discover the culprits of vandalism to their own cars, but cars parked nearby as well. An incredible example of this occurred about a week ago in Valencia, Spain, when a Porsche Carrera 2, a car that can fetch more than $100,00 was stolen while parked next to a Tesla. This video posted to Twitter shows that the dormant Tesla was recording the entire theft; however, the mere video recording of the theft was enough to force the criminals to abandon the car, after the video had been seen tens of thousands of times within the first 24 hours of it being posted. This is just one in a series of instances where crimes have been resolved by the private surveillance system that has become Tesla’s Sentry Mode.
