You plan to build five cell factories in Europe by 2030. How much respect do you have for the job?
I don’t want to talk it down: constructing the gigafactories is a major project, which will really ask a great deal of us. We are now building multiple cell factories. It comes down to three things. Firstly, a strong team – that is why we have added more top experts from the international battery industry and will continue to expand the team. Secondly, the right partners – for the construction of the buildings and production plants. Thirdly, standardisation. If we plan each plant individually, it will take too long. That is why we have gone for the concept of a standard factory, whilst at the same time remaining adaptive and flexible. This way, all the locations will go operational on time.
