The first batch of vehicles produced by Tesla’s overseas plant in Shanghai was delivered to customers Monday.
U.S. electric carmaker Tesla Inc. broke ground on Jan. 7 in Shanghai on its first overseas factory. Located in Lingang Area, a high-end manufacturing park in the southeast harbor of Shanghai, the plant is designed with an annual capacity of 500,000 electric cars.
Tesla signed the agreement with the Shanghai municipal government in July 2018 to build the factory. In October 2018, the company was approved to use an 864,885-square-meter tract of land in Lingang for its Shanghai plant.
