As Q3 2021 draws to a close, Tesla Giga Shanghai appears to be rushing into action. Many Tesla Model Y and Model 3 automobiles can still be seen parked or on car carriers inside the Shanghai Gigafactory. Indicating that the company’s cars are in high demand.
Tesla Giga Shanghai, according to local sources, is already producing 1,600 Model Y automobiles every day, up significantly from last month. Giga Shanghai began producing 1,000 Model Y units per day in August, surpassing its Model 3 production rate of 800 units per day.
According to a recent Teslarati post, the vehicles Tesla China manufactures in September will most likely be marketed domestically. Giga Shanghai, as Tesla’s major export center, concentrated significantly on exporting automobiles to Europe at the start of the third quarter. Sales of the Tesla Model Y began in Europe in August.
Tesla China exported 31,379 cars from the Gigafactory Shanghai in August. According to the Chinese Passenger Car Association (CPCA), Tesla China sold 44,264 cars last month, a 34 percent increase month over month. Tesla China sold 12,885 vehicles in August, up from 8,621 in July.
The output of Tesla Giga Shanghai adds considerably to the company’s quarterly production and delivery figures. Despite the Model S and Model X lines being stopped down in preparation for the Plaid and updated Long Range models, Tesla manufactured 180,338 vehicles in the first quarter. In the first quarter of 2021, the firm delivered a total of 184,800 cars. Tesla produced 206,421 vehicles and delivered 201,250 in the second quarter, showing considerable progress.
