In the last few days, foreign media reported that the Tesla Shanghai factory will be closed from December 25 through January 1 next year during the suspension of production of Tesla’s electric car Model Y.
As per the source, the decision was made due to a significant drop in orders, which was part of Tesla’s previously developed plan to reduce production by 30 percent, and such a suspension of production would result in a decrease of about 30 percent in Model Y production compared to November as a result of the suspension.
A Tesla internal staff member responded to this by saying, “Not true, why should production be suspended? The rumors are very strong.”
Tesla China sources also responded with untrue information last week, stating that the production of its Model Y at the Shanghai factory was reduced by about 20%. That news was also reported by Tesla newspapers last week.

The retail sales of new energy passenger cars in November exceeded 598,000 units, which is a 58.2% increase over the previous month and a 7.8% increase over last year, of which Tesla China accounted for 10.5% of the market share. The number of wholesale units reported by Tesla China for November was 100,291 units, while the number of units exported was 37,798 units. A further 52,424 units of the Model Y were sold alone in addition to the other models.
