Tesla CEO Elon Musk has revealed today the first render of the Tesla Gigafactory 4 (aka Giga Berlin), which is currently under construction in Grünheide near Berlin in Germany.

The main manufacturing building looks attractive and is accompanied by several smaller facilities. Overall it looks like the initial stage.

 

It's difficult to say, but it might be a bit smaller than the first stage of Giga Shanghai. On the other hand, Tobias Lindh, who often records videos at the site, says that it's slightly bigger, at 698m x 310m:

 

Here is how two other Gigafactories were presented on renders:
