Although there are certain sources that are skeptical about the return to full production, saying that the line remains under stress due to continuing coronavirus restrictions in the financial capital, Shanghai. A source close to the matter cautioned against viewing the restart as a return to full production, saying the line remains under stress amid continuing coronavirus restrictions in Shanghai.

On Friday, Tesla got the green signal from the local authorities to restart the production at the Shanghai plant from Monday onwards. But the reopening was delayed due to several logistical reasons. Till now, there have been no official statements by Tesla. . The gigafactory was forced to close operations on March 28 due to Covid restrictions in Shanghai. This has been the longest since the factory began production in late 2019. Due to the suspension in production, there has been an output loss of more than 50,000 vehicles, according to the calculations based on the output plans of Tesla.

Currently, Tesla manufactures Model 3 and Model Y electric vehicles in Shanghai, serving the Chinese market and also acting as an export hub to countries like Germany and Japan.
