On February 22 and 23, Tesla's Fremont factory was forced to shutdown due to a lack of some parts. However, after a short-term shutdown of production, the factory has already fully recovered its work.

Several days ago, a number of media outlets published information that production at Tesla's factory in Fremont on the Model 3 line would be stopped for two weeks from February 22 to March 7. It was reported that employees would be paid for February 22 and 23, but not for the period from February 28 to March 3. However, the falsehood of these claims was exposed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk. On February 25, he tweeted that in fact, production was stopped only on the 22nd and 23rd, and on February 24, the factory returned to normal operation.

Tesmanian received photos taken in and near the factory, which show that at the moment, activity is already at a high level. The parking lots for new cars are full, and new vehicles are loaded and shipped to delivery centers and ports. The employee parking lot is also completely filled with cars, which confirms the fact that the factory is operating the same as before the two-day shutdown.

According to an internal email from Musk that was leaked two days ago, before the factory had access to the necessary parts, Tesla seized the opportunity to bring Fremont production down for a few days to carry out equipment upgrades and maintenance that would need to be done in the future.
