Tesla: 3 thousand Chinese Model 3 per weekNovember 6, 2018
The American company released on Friday a message that it plans to initially collect about 3,000 Model 3 cars a week at its Shanghai-based Gigafactory 3 plant in order to reduce the impact of tariffs.
In the same message, the company said that Model S and Model X sales in China were and are likely to continue to suffer from a recent increase in tariffs introduced by the Chinese government for American-made cars.
Tesla plans to produce a total of 10,000 Model 3 electric vehicles per week. In particular, by increasing productivity to 7,000 per week in an enterprise in Fremont, California.
But the company is well aware that it will take a lot of time, since the construction of the plant in Shanghai has not yet begun.
China is the largest market for electric vehicles, and most experts predict that sales of electric vehicles in the country will grow rapidly, since by 2030 the share of electric vehicles in the Chinese market will be 100%.
