Tesla has halted Model 3 production in China. Exciting news ahead!

Recent information from Gigafactory Shanghai suggests that Tesla may be preparing a significant change regarding the popular Tesla Model 3 produced in China. The information stems from a recent drone flyover above the production facility.

All indications point towards the Model 3 receiving the anticipated upgrade

Wu Wa, a long-time observer of the Chinese Gigafactory who has been closely following Giga Shanghai from the beginning, recently noted that it appears the production of the Model 3 has been halted. As confirmed by the drone footage, production within the factory premises is ongoing, but most of the activities are focused on the Model Y section, while the section dedicated to Model 3 production is strangely quiet.

A Bloomberg report from early May already hinted that Tesla in China is nearing the final phase before commencing trial production of the enhanced Model 3. The report also mentioned that Model 3 production may be temporarily suspended for a few days at the end of May to accommodate the completion of modifications to the new production lines. The previous information has been corroborated by the drone flyover, which revealed that Bloomberg’s information could be highly accurate.

Will we see a new Tesla Model 3 vehicle?

Considering the temporary shutdown of the Model 3 production line at the Chinese Gigafactory, one could speculate that the Chinese factory is indeed gearing up for something significant, potentially related to the Model 3. Only time will tell whether these changes are related to the anticipated Project Highland. However, it is a fact that Tesla has a significant incentive to update its successful model due to the competitive nature of the Chinese automotive sector.

The announced Project Highland is expected to encompass a range of important updates for the Model 3, ranging from changes in the manufacturing process to modifications in both the exterior and interior. Particularly, alterations to the vehicle’s exterior appearance are crucial for the market, as the Model 3 has maintained a similar design for nearly seven years since its prototype unveiling in 2016. Consumers would certainly welcome some interior modernization as well.
