Fremont – Model Y Ramped to Installed Capacity
Although the Model Y production line was operating for about four months in the first half of 2020 due to shutdowns, we exited Q2 with Model Y production running at installed capacity. This ramp was significantly faster than our initial Model 3 ramp, which took over nine months to reach the same weekly rate. We are installing additional machinery at the Fremont Factory, which is expected to increase total Model 3 / Model Y capacity from 400,000 to 500,000 units per year.


Construction for Model Y lines in the Shanghai factory is progressing as planned, with first deliveries expected in 2021.
