Still lockdown in Shanghai - Tesla informs first customers!
As has now become known on Twitter, Tesla is now informing the first customers in the app that the production of their Tesla has been stopped for the time being due to the epidemic situation in Shanghai. Due to the Chinese zero-Covid policy, production at the Tesla plant in Shanghai has been at a standstill since March 28, 2022 and has not yet resumed. An impact on delivery times in Europe is not yet known. However, should the lockdown continue, it can be assumed that this could also have an impact on the European market.
