According to a report by the CLS news, the reporter learned from people familiar with the matter that the second phase of Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory project has passed the phased review a few days ago, and it is expected that Model Y will be fully put into production early next year. In response, Tesla China stated that “there is no response yet.”
The Tesla Gigafactory in Shanghai, China, currently only produces Model 3, with an annual production capacity of 250,000 vehicles. Tesla plans to start producing Model Y at the Shanghai Gigafactory before the end of the year.
The first batch of Model Y products to enter the Chinese market will be imported, and reservations are now being accepted. The new car has a long-life version and a high-performance version with pre-sale prices of 488,000 and 533,000, respectively.
