Tesla has a shiny new workspace. This 11-acre facility is where cars will be assembled and tested before delivery across Europe. The new plant, in Tilburg, Netherlands, is actually a major expansion of an assembly space Tesla opened just two years ago. Tesla needs the extra room as it launches the new Model X SUV and tries to expand from about 50,000 deliveries worldwide this year to 500,000 by 2020. When the new digs are fully up and running, about 450 cars will roll off the line each week.
