Tesla is accused of receiving preferential treatment from German politicians

Tesla is accused of receiving preferential treatment from politicians in Germany who are aware of the company's advances in Europe's transition to sustainable transportation.

Prominent politicians, including Brandenburg Premier Dietmar Wodecki and Economics Minister Jörg Steinbach, are under fire from Brandenburgers and green groups who believe the automaker is receiving special treatment.

They faced criminal reprimands from residents after unauthorized piles of dirt caused an outcry.

Tesla addressed the initial problems with stacks by creating a new division to handle permits.

This was followed by allegations that Tesla's planned expansion of the station might be met with problems related to water and electricity shortages.

The Prime Minister of Brandenburg, Dietmar Wojdek, assured the automaker that supply issues would be resolved and that local government officials would find a solution.

But locals and green groups can't quite understand why Tesla is being treated so favorably.

In a letter to Woidke today, NABU Brandenburg, Green League Brandenburg, and VNLB, three German environmental groups, questioned Tesla's treatment, accusing the prime minister of favoring the company that "provokes terror and incomprehension among many people in Brandenburg and especially among members of nature conservation societies''.

In the communication, the green groups stated that Tesla "is one of the largest carbon dioxide emitters in Brandenburg."

The groups also indicate that the cutting of forests, which gave way to the plant, destroyed the large numbers of snakes and lizards that occupied the area.

The environmental groups said: "How does this development fit into Brandenburg's goals for climate and environmental protection and species protection?"

Jörg Steinbach, the region's economics minister, recently went to Tesla's headquarters in Austin, Texas, to discuss the company's expansion needs.

Steinbach has been a major supporter of Giga Berlin since its inception due to a boom in the local economy.

Giga Berlin is already the largest industrial employer in the region, just a year after starting production, and as a result, the plant has already reached a running rate of 4,000 vehicles per week.
