According to 36kr reports, Tesla’s Shanghai factory next year’s production plan has been released. It has been learned from many industry insiders that in 2021, Tesla’s Shanghai Super Factory plans to produce about 550,000 vehicles, including 300,000 Model 3 and 250,000 Model Y.
The above-mentioned source also revealed that “in the 550,000 units, there are about 100,000 Model 3 units for export, and Model Y also plans to export 10,000 units.” According to the report, in 2020, the planned production capacity of Tesla’s Shanghai plant is 150000 units.
Previously, Tesla Vice President Tao Lin said that the second phase of the plant is expected to be completed by the end of this year. The second phase of Tesla’s plant is the main production site for the Model Y. According to previous information, the China-made Model Y will be officially delivered in the first quarter of 2021.
It is reported that the investment agency forecasts Tesla’s global sales next year at around 900,000 units, which means that the Shanghai factory has to undertake more than half of the production tasks.
The Tesla Shanghai Gigafactory is Tesla’s first factory outside of the United States. In January this year, Tesla’s Shanghai plant was completed and put into production, with an average monthly delivery of more than 10,000 Model 3 models.
