Leaked images suggest that Tesla's China production could start soon



Photographs believed to have been taken at Tesla's Gigafactory in Shanghai appear to show production setup tests for what may be an imminent start to Model 3 production in China.

Photos from Tesla's Chinese factory posted on Chinese social media show that the US electric car manufacturer has already installed some of the production lines, reports Electrek.

At the beginning of this year, Tesla began construction of a production facility in the world's top EV market – China – to compete on equal terms with a growing number of local EV manufacturers. As a US-produced vehicle, Tesla's cars in China have been subject to steep tariffs, and sales have suffered in recent months due to the US-China trade war.

In January this year, Musk joined the mayor of Shanghai for the groundbreaking ceremony for Tesla's first factory outside the United States and in the world's largest EV market, China.

Tesla aims to complete the original construction of the Shanghai Gigafactory this summer, start production of Model 3 by the end of this year, and reach high-volume production next year, Musk wrote on Twitter on the day of the event in January.

In June, Electrek reported that Tesla's third Gigafactory, the one that will give it a go around Chinese tariffs for US goods, is being built "with incredible speed."

Last month, Morgan Stanley said Tesla could open its Chinese factory sooner than expected, adding that it expects the US electric vehicle manufacturer to become "the leading luxury EV player in China." ”

Last week came reports that Tesla is in an advanced stage of talks with South Korea's LG Chem to use batteries other than Panasonics for the electric vehicles it would produce at its Chinese factory. The talks about battery supply with LG Chem are seen as a move towards diversifying Tesla's suppliers, as Panasonic is currently the exclusive supplier of battery cells.

Already in November last year, Elon Musk said that Tesla would likely source multiple battery cells from its Chinese production to meet demand in a timely manner.
