Tesla Inc. will make a redesigned Model Y at its first European factory, Elon Musk said, indicating the electric-car manufacturer will detail improvements on how it assembles vehicles at an event later this month.

The factory that’s under construction outside Berlin will have the company’s most-advanced paint shop, probably make batteries and cells, and implement additional “original” engineering and design measures, Musk, Tesla’s chief executive officer, told reporters during a visit to the Gruenheide site on Thursday.
