Tesla China seems ready to crush Q4 2021 deliveries. A recent video of Giga Shanghai revealed that the factory’s holding lot was filled to the brim, hinting at Tesla’s strong demand this quarter.
Tesla advocates counted a record-shattering 2,150+ vehicles parked at Giga Shanghai in an October 28th video posted by drone operator Jason Yang. The video reveals that Giga Shanghai isn’t letting up as 2021 ends. It seems like Tesla China is doing the exact opposite and pushing harder than ever.
