Production at Tesla's Shanghai plant ramps up

As of April 30, a total of 10,000 vehicles have rolled off the assembly line at Tesla's Shanghai gigafactory since the company resumed production on April 19. At the same time, the company's production capacity has not yet fully recovered, the company said.

In the first four months of this year, the Tesla plant in Shanghai delivered 183,686 vehicles, which is more than the same period in 2020, and also 1.7 times more compared to January-April 2021.

Due to a new outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic in the metropolis, the Shanghai gigafactory was forced to suspend production for more than 20 days.

The company also said that the Shanghai plant has already started producing cars for export. Part of the manufactured cars has already gone to the markets of the Asia-Pacific region and Europe.

“We consider the epidemiological situation a short-term test and challenge. We have seen the ability of all sectors to cope with the challenges in the reopening process. We are convinced that production will soon return to normal,” said Tesla Vice President Tao Lin.

Tesla's Shanghai Gigafactory is China's first all-foreign vehicle manufacturing facility. Deliveries from the Shanghai gigafactory last year totaled 484,130 vehicles, up 235% from 2020, accounting for a 51.7% share of Tesla's global production capacity in 2021.
