Tesla Giga Shanghai's MIC Model 3 raked in 15,000 orders in April, mostly for the Long Range RWD variant. The Long Range variant seems to have shifted the demand away from the MIC Model 3 SR+ despite its reduced price.
Tesla Giga Shanghai is ready to deliver the MIC Model 3 Long Range RWD ahead of schedule. Deliveries for the Long Range RWD were initially scheduled to start in June, but Tesla China has confirmed that the newly-produced units are ready to ship now.
Tesla Giga Shanghai could boost vehicle production by 73% with its plans to increase its car parts production capacity. Tesla China’s plans for Gigafactory 3 have been described in a document submitted to the Shanghai government.
