Tesla has just announced that it will stop production of its electric vehicles so that it can increase the pace by updating assembly lines.
You’re here remains the undeniable market leader in electric cars. However, its production capacity is not yet sufficient to respond effectively to demand. To produce more, the American manufacturer has just announced that the production of the Tesla Model Y and Model 3 in the factories of Berlin and Shanghai had been put on holde. The purpose of this shutdown is quite simply to update the assembly lines in order to increase their efficiency.
Tesla will produce more Model Y and Model 3
Tesla has just had a lackluster second quarter of 2022. Despite a new delivery record during the month of June 2022, the American firm did not show greater growth compared to the 1st quarter of the current year. This situation is due in particular to the pandemic as well as the supply difficulties linked to the shortage of components. Good news, the Gigafactory will benefit from important changes in order to increase production.
On July 11, 2022, Tesla came to announce the shutdown of the Gigafactory in Berlin, producing Tesla Model Y Performance, for a period of two weeks. The purpose of this production pause is to update the production lines.
A goal of 10,000 Tesla per week
Thanks to these changes, Elon Musk points out that he can increase production capacity from 1,000 vehicles per week to 10,000. In detail, this update to production lines would allow each vehicle to spend 30 seconds on each stage, compared to 3 minutes. currently.
A shutdown of Model 3 and Model Y production is also planned for the Gigafactory in Shanghai. The industrial complex will indeed close for a period of 20 days from July 18, 2022.
Tesla should thus offer record production figures during the third quarter of 2022 if all goes well. These changes also suggest shorter delivery times in the months to come.
