Tesla Gigafactory Shanghai is reportedly making 3,000 electric cars per week amid Tesla having to shut down its other factories.
As of Monday, Tesla was forced to shut down production at Fremont factory in California, where the automaker has produced almost all its vehicles for the past decade.
The company started production at Gigafactory Shanghai in China late last year.
Tesla also had to shut down production briefly at the facility in February due to the Chinese New Year and then the coronavirus crisis in China.
The automaker had a production capacity of about 2,000 vehicles per week prior to the shutdown.
Now a new report from 乌瓦, a Youtuber who has been tracking progress at the factory through drone videos and interviews with employees and locals, states that Tesla is now capable of producing 3,000 cars per week at the plant:
Tesla’s Shanghai Super Factory currently has a production capacity of 3,000 units per week, which is a significant improvement over the 2,000 units per week before the resumption of work.
He posted a new drone video of Tesla Gigafactory Shanghai showing a lot of activity and a continuous stream of Model 3 vehicles coming out of the factory and being loaded on trucks:
