So Tesla is talking Gig 2 in Germany. Is this news? If Germany is a shoo-in, then yes, because it’s “enemy territory.” But Tesla might be doing what it did with US states during Gig 1 planning: just scouting around for incentive packages. Perhaps we’ll see a bidding war between nations, with Germany touting its prowess in auto engineering, and free beer to boot. Apparently, Germany’s economy minister is so excited, he just can’t hide it and he’s singing about it in public. Maybe that’s the news. Germans don’t excite easily.
