The enterprise will need three to four days to boost its production gradually to full capacity, according to Song Gang, the ctorys manucturing and operation director.

Tesla is also offering a home delivery service in some parts of China. It has launched online services such as live introductions and remote consultations to cilitate car purchases amid the pandemic.


Automobile enterprises generally have a long industrial chain, and thus they have higher requirements for the collaborative resumption of production.


Tesla said it is actively promoting the resumption of production at more than 100 parts manucturers with the help of relevant government departments.

Affected by the latest COVID-19 resurgence in Shanghai, the Shanghai Gigactory had suspended production for over 20 days.
