As announced, Tesla has started delivering the Model 3 produced in Shanghai in China and has shown that 1,000 Model 3 are rolling off the assembly line every week.
At a ceremony at the start of delivery of the Tesla Model 3 from the Chinese Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai, Tesla manager Wang Hao announced that the plant was already building 1,000 Model 3 a week and could even produce up to 280 a day.
Shanghai: Tesla can build up to 280 Model 3s a day
This is interesting in that the Shanghai plant was raised and commissioned in less than a year. Even optimists would initially have assumed a kind of test production. But Tesla already seems to be able to think about increasing emissions.

According to Wang’s words, with a maximum of 280 cars per day and a 7-day week, 1,960 Model 3 would be possible per week. The realistic order of magnitude should therefore range between 1,000 and almost 2,000. As a result, between 12,000 and 25,000 vehicles could roll off the assembly line in the first quarter of 2020 and be delivered to buyers.
Deliveries will start in January 2020
After the first deliveries of a few dozen Model 3s to employees, Tesla has announced that it will begin large-scale deliveries to customers before January 24, 2020.
Loud Clean Technica the start of delivery in the first quarter of 2020 could have accounting reasons. Instead of starting with depreciation on the plant and its equipment in the current year, it could be positive for the presentation of corporate finances to postpone such effects on the new financial year.
