Tesla’s first overseas Gigafactory 3 car plant, nears completion and is ready to start Model 3 production sometime this month, in Shanghai.
The $2 billion factory Gigafactory, Tesla’s first overseas assembly facility in Shanghai, China, is near completion and the plant is set to begin production of the Model 3. This is less than a year after construction of the facility began in January.
A Tesla source told Reuters:
“We aim to start some production in October, but the actual production volume depends on many factors including car orders we received, performance of newly hired workers, supply chain and so on.
It’s unclear when we can reach the 1,000-2,000 units per week target.”
