On Monday, DPA reported that Tesla has fully resumed production at its Grünheide plant near Berlin, after being halted due to parts shortages caused by attacks on ships in the Red Sea by Houthi rebels.
The electric vehicle manufacturer had previously stated that all necessary production parts were sufficiently available.
It is worth noting that Tesla suspended vehicle production for nearly two weeks starting from January 29th due to the attacks on ships by Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen.
These attacks forced cargo ships to change routes and use much longer maritime routes around the southern tip of Africa, resulting in delays that led to component shortages, thus preventing the completion of cars, Tesla claims.
The company began production at the German plant almost two years ago.
In the initial phase of its expansion, it aimed to build 10,000 cars per week in Grünheide.
Recently, over 6,000 cars per week have been built.
A total of 12,500 people work at this factory.
