The Tesla factory in China is already capable of producing a million electric vehicles a year

The Tesla plant in Shanghai is now serving not only domestic demand in China, but is also the largest source of electric vehicles for export. In September, according to statistics, 83,000 electric vehicles were released, which means that the affected enterprise from April's locodown has now reached the level of production of more than 20,000 cars per week, and is technically capable of producing a million electric vehicles per year.

Against the background of other producers, according to statistics from the Chinese Passenger Car Association, Tesla's success is also worthy of respect. Unfortunately, the statistics compiled throughout the PRC market combine both the number of battery electric vehicles sold and the number of hybrids sold, so Tesla's performance on this background is somewhat diminished. In total, 660,000 cars with traction motors were sold in China last month, almost twice as many as a year ago.

Between January and September, 3.71 million electric vehicles and hybrids were accounted for in China, which is also twice as high as last year, and vehicles with new types of power plant formed 21.34% of China ' s primary builder during the three quarters of this year, and when all the light vehicles in use in China were accounted for, hybrids and electric vehicles numbered as of the end of September 11.49 million copies, which corresponds to approximately 3.65% of all cars in use in the country.

Remember, in the third quarter, I released 365,000 and shipped 344 thousand electric vehicles. The annual production rate grew by 45%, in a sequence of about a third. It is generally assumed that China will have another Tesla electric vehicle assembly plant in the foreseeable future, which will be placed next to the existing ones. In this quarter, the company is going to release almost half a million cars by all its businesses. In the face of material shortages and logistical disruptions, such a high rate of expansion of production is difficult to sustain, but Ilona Mask has never been afraid.
