Tesla electronic components supplier Pegatron has seen increased orders for the central control system for Model 3 in Q4, according to sources from the related upstream supply chain.
In late September, it became known that Pegatron had struck a deal with Tesla to supply electronic components for the company's vehicles. The Taiwanese manufacturer is producing central control system parts for Model 3 sedans. Now, according to sources, Pegatron has seen increased orders for the central control system in Q4 2020, reported The Burnin.
The demand for Tesla cars continues to grow and, according to forecasts, the company should deliver about 180,000 units in Q4. Predictions for 2021 are even more optimistic as Tesla continues to expand its manufacturing capacity.
Pegatron chairman TH Tung has expressed optimism about the car industry as some countries around the world have announced that all of their new registered cars will use clean energy starting in 2035.
Pegatron is currently evaluating plans to build factories in the United States to service the company in response to Tesla's expansion, sources said. Pegatron believes that the best thing about joining Tesla's supply chain is the potential long-term value of the partnership.
