Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk complained on Twitter about a consultation process that began on Tuesday with local residents who may object to the huge factory under construction near Berlin.
This process, repetitive due to fears it missed regulations for the first time, is a hindrance to Tesla’s plans to start producing electric vehicles this month.
“Sigh. What they are doing is just wrong, ”Musk tweeted Tuesday in response to a published article about the consultation.
The car and battery factory is still awaiting approval from local authorities. The consultation will last until November 22.
In his two-year battle to launch production at the facility, Musk expressed frustration over German laws and processes, arguing that complex planning requirements are at odds with the urgency needed to tackle climate change.
