Tesla is breaking ground on Gigafactory 3 in China today
« on: January 07, 2019, 01:22:09 pm »


Tesla is breaking ground on Gigafactory 3 in China today as it moves forward with its accelerated plan to establish manufacturing capacity in the country due to the uncertain trade situation.
 
Earlier this summer, Tesla announced a deal with the Shanghai government to build a wholly owned local factory.

Tesla then accelerated the Gigafactory 3 plans in response to the trade war between the US and China.
In October, Tesla announced that it secured 210-acres of land for Gigafactory 3 in China and said that it is ‘on track’ with an accelerated construction plan.

Last month, Deputy Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee and Mayor of Shanghai Ying Yong stated that Tesla “basically completed land leveling and is about to start construction” at Gigafactory 3. The project is “expected to be partially put into operation in the second half of next year.”
