The anti epidemic experience from China is being exported to the United States, which has become a model for American factories that have just returned to work. Tao Lin, Teslas vice president of Chinas foreign affairs, said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency recently that the ramp up of production capacity of Teslas Shanghai Super factory and the construction of the second phase factory are all progressing smoothly. The new model y is expected to be mass produced in the first quarter of next year and run out of Tesla speed again.
Tesla Shanghai Super factory is located in the new area near the port of Shanghai free trade zone. It is the first wholly foreign-owned automobile factory after China liberalizes foreign investment in the automobile industry. In 2019, the plant ran out of the Tesla speed of the year when it was started, put into production and delivered.
Tesla Shanghai Super factory is also one of the earliest automobile manufacturing factories in China. Tao Lin said that the factory is now producing smoothly, and it is expected to achieve the goal of producing 4000 vehicles a week in June this year, which means that the actual output will exceed the design capacity of the first stage super factory with an annual output of 150000 units.
Taolin said that the second phase of the super plant is also progressing smoothly. It is expected that the construction will be completed by the end of this year and the model Y model production is expected to be realized in the first quarter of next year. This is more than a year since Tesla founder mask announced the launch of the model y manufacturing project in Shanghai on January 7 this year, once again refreshing the Tesla speed.
During the anti epidemic process of Shanghai factory, Tesla and the government worked closely to explore many anti epidemic experiences, which not only provided reference for the new area near the port of the free trade zone where the super factory is located, but also for the US factory which just returned to work.
How to isolate the returned employees? How can employees reduce close contacts while completing the work? These experiences have been written into Teslas China operation manual and are based on localization in the United States to support better resumption of production in the United States. Tao Lin said.
According to Tao Lin, Tesla has a strong Internet gene, and its test drive, sales and other links are accelerating online. In contrast, offline experience center carries more experience functions of new products and new ideas. In the next step, Teslas experience center will move to more new cities according to the expansion of customer groups in different cities.
