Tesla's Elon Musk Reveals His Favorite Color From the New Giga Berlin Paint Shop Palette

Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, seems to be quite impressed by the performing abilities of his Giga Berlin paint shop.

According to the mastermind CEO’s recent tweets, his favorite color is the new Deep Crimson, offering a whole new appearance to the so far limited car colors.

The German Gigafactory has the most advanced paint shop in the world, and the new tendency will most likely upgrade the color palette in the Fremont and Shanghai factories.

The car colors that Tesla manages so far are limited. Pearl White Multi Coat is a color that comes with any car, and it is included in the initial price. Solid Black, Midnight Silver Metallic, Deep Blue Metallic, and Red Multi Coat are tones available at an additional fee.

Regardless of this limited set of colors, the earlier Tesla cars like Model S and the original Roadster had far more color options.

For example, the original Roadster was available in 13 distinct colors, including Electric Blue, Very Orange, Twilight Blue, Racing Green, and Brilliant Yellow.

With these typical racing shades, the original Roadster was competing with the other sports cars on the market.

Model S was also available in various colors, including Brown and Green metallic, and the first buyers could get a rare Signature Red Model S.

Elon Musk is announcing the paint shop of Giga Berlin as the best on the planet, offering a wide variety of shades and “more layers of stunning colors that subtly change with curvature.”

By hearing Mr. Musk saying this, Tesla lovers in Europe and around the world can’t wait to see the improved color design of the beloved EVs.

In the past, his cars had a reputation for inconsistent paint quality, reported by some Tesla car buyers.

After constructive criticism, true leaders improve their work, and so did Mr. Musk by enhancing the paint quality and variety of the world’s #1 electric vehicles.

The evidence of Tesla’s effort to improve paint quality is the advanced paint shop of Giga Berlin.

Automotive industry fans agree that Tesla’s advanced technology, design, and especially battery life is way beyond the reach of any other EV on the market.

Although this was not the case with its paint finish, it looks like Mr. Musk will make it happen and not only compete with the other brands, but overtake them in the segment of car finishes.

Even Bob Lutz, the former GM executive said this about the recent paint improvements, “But, when next to the car, I was stunned. Not only was the paint without any discernible flaw, but the various panels formed a body of precision that was beyond reproach. Gaps from hood to fenders, doors to frame, and all the others appeared to be perfectly even, equal side-to-side, and completely parallel.”

We have no other choice but to wait patiently to see the new palette of Tesla’s Giga Berlin.
