Tesla Inc. won approval to build more test cars at its unfinished German factory as the U.S. electric-vehicle maker continues to wait for final permitting of the project.

Tesla can test as many as 2,000 EVs at the factory outside Berlin, up from 250 previously, Frauke Zelt, a spokeswoman for the environment ministry in the state of Brandenburg, said Tuesday.
