The Tesla Shanghai plant is scheduled to build its first Model 3 in September 2019, the third quarter. A slight delay in the construction of other municipal facilities and facilities might cause a delay. The latest time for completed Teslas cars from the new factory is the end of 2019.
The significant will be a large production ramp in 2020 with production in the 200,000 to 350,000 range and then closer to full 500,000 car production in 2021.
