Tesla Giga 3 Shanghai 2nd Shift Started, Aims 5K Weekly Production in July

On March 1, 2020, Tesla Gigafactory 3 Shanghai experts and key investors exchanged conference calls. Experts said that the phase 1 of the Tesla Gigafactory Shanghai is mainly produced Model 3, with a planned production capacity of 150,000 vehicles. Outsourcing and processing of components can continue to increase production capacity.

The current phase 1 production capacity of the Tesla Gigafactory Shanghai is 2,000 units per week, with single shifts per day and overtime on Saturdays to extend the length of the single shift without affecting production capacity; with two shifts in March are expected to reach 3,500 vehicles per week; the output in the first half of the year is 50,000 -60,000 units of the China-Made Model 3.

Experts also mentioned the phase 1 production capacity of the plant will climb greatly from July. It is expected that a production pressure test will be conducted at the end of June. Now the entire Tesla Shanghai plant is pushing forward from high-level to ordinary employees. Capacity increase is expected to start in July and can reach a capacity of 5,000 vehicles per week, that is, 20,000 vehicles per month. In the first and second half of this year, the combined production capacity is expected to be about 170,000 vehicles. Looking at the whole year next year (2021), if the whole year runs at a production capacity of 5,000 vehicles per week, it can reach a production capacity of nearly 250,000 vehicles per year.
