Drone operator Jason Yang spotted over 300 Tesla sedans within GF3’s parking lot in preparation delivery. Car carriers were also seen transporting locally-made Tesla Model 3 to delivery centers across China.
Global Times estimated weekly Tesla China output will be 2,900 units at the phase-1 factory. It will take time to fully ramp.
Tesla plans to produce more than 1,000 cars a week by the end of 2019 from the Shanghai factory and deliver Chinese-made cars before the Spring Festival, the Chinese New Year January 25.

Currently Fremont is running at about ~8750 cars per week (all 3 models) so ~450k per year. GF3 CAN only scale to 150k per year so next year it will probably build ~100k best case. Fremont will ramp more. So lets say they hit 500k for the calendar year. Now you have 600k cars
