NASDAQ title Tesla share: Tesla’s Gigafactory gates in Grünheide open for factory tours

The construction of the Gigafactory in Grünheide took two years. Tesla’s heart is in Germany, around 30 kilometers as the crow flies from the center of Berlin. Now “credits” should enable Tesla fans to take a “factory tour”.

• Tesla is planning a “factory tour” in Grünheide
• Factory tour as a referral bonus
• A viewing is possible for 15,000 credits

Recommendation or purchase gives credits

Access to the Tesla factory remains a special feature, so a tour is not easily possible. On the contrary: there are a lot of things to consider. It was only at the beginning of the year that Tesla relaunched its own recommendation program, allowing higher discounts and more points. The name has also changed, because now we speak of “Recommend and Deserve”. The points that can be collected are needed to get tickets for a “factory tour,” according to the insideTesla portal. The factory tour is a kind of bonus that you can receive when recommending new buyers or making a purchase.

You need a whopping 15,000 credits, that’s what these points are called, to win the tour. In the associated app, credits can be redeemed for various rewards, such as free Supercharger kilometers or vehicle upgrades – and now also a factory tour. According to the app, it takes around five days until you are informed about further steps. But the whole thing only seems that simple at first glance. Only one factory tour is permitted per account, so multiple redemption of this special bonus is not possible. You can take three accompanying people with you. However, travel and accommodation must be paid for independently. Of course, for reasons of confidentiality, no photos or videos may be taken on the site. In addition to finding a new Tesla buyer, you also receive rewards based on loyalty or new purchases. If you buy a Tesla Model S, you will receive around 7,500 credits, as will Model X and Model Y. The Model 3, on the other hand, does not yet allow buyers to receive a reward, according to Teslamag.
