Tesla Halts Production in Germany After Suspected Arson Attack

March 05, 2024

The Brandenburg police said they responded to the fire at a high-voltage power mast in a field near Tesla’s plant. Tesla did not respond to requests for comment, but a spokeswoman for the U.S. automaker confirmed to German media that production had been halted and all employees evacuated. Some 12,500 people work at the plant, according to Tesla, but not all of them would have been present at the time the power went down. A group of far-left extremists acting under the same name claimed responsibility for an attack in 2021 that cut off power to the construction site for the Tesla factory.
