"Relying on China's strong industrial chain advantages and advanced manufacturing level, the global competitiveness of the China-made Model 3 is very robust," said Song Gang, manufacturing and operation director of the Tesla Shanghai Gigafactory. "Exporting to Europe means the quality of made-in-China Model 3 sedans has been recognized by the European market."
After the production capacity reaches the first-stage target, Tesla can meet the needs of Chinese consumers while providing high-quality products to European consumers, said Song, adding that "the export of Shanghai-made Teslas is an important step in Tesla's global layout."
According to Tesla, with the help of governments at all levels, Tesla has overcome the impact of the coronavirus epidemic as its production and sales work quickly recovered.
With the continuous expansion of Tesla's team in China, the Shanghai Gigafactory will produce cars that better meet the needs of Chinese consumers, Song said.
Tesla officially delivered the first batch of made in China Model 3 sedans to the public earlier this year, one year after the company broke ground on its first overseas plant. ■
