First look at Tesla’s Made-in-China Model 3


Tesla China’s Weibo accounts has launched the first official pictures of the Made-in-China Model 3 produced at Gigafactory 3. The images provide the primary close-up glance of the vehicle, including some design elements that are not present in its own US-made counterparts. 

Contrary to Tesla’so called US-made Model 3s, the vehicles which are being made at Gigafactory 3 will comprise two badges at the back. On the other side of the car are Chinese personalities that reference “Tesla,” and also on the right will be the words “Model 3″ in English. Tesla showed two vehicles off in its own teaser photographs, both of which can be painted blue and fitted with all 18” Aero Wheels.

Like the first China-spec Model which Tesla began exporting to China, the Gigafactory 3-made vehicles will also be equipped with a dual charge port. This permits Model 3 owners to charge their vehicles around the country’s growing EV charging infrastructure. 

Tesla China’s release of the Made-in-China Model 3’s first pictures follows the firm ’s teaser for the car, which indicated that the automobile will be available shortly. Along on this teaser were speculations which Tesla will be holding an occasion for the Made-in-China Model 3 on November 11, which also appears to be the country’s Singles’ Day, a massive shopping occasion that consistently summarizes the US’ Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Tesla Chairwoman Robyn Denholm, who’s now in China, has noted that Gigafactory 3 is waiting for its blessings to begin manufacturing the Made-in-China Model 3. Once the final approvals are acquired, the Shanghai-based facility will start producing the all-electric automobile for the local sector. Elon Musk has previously estimated that Gigafactory 3’s Model 3 production could start at a speed of 1,000 units each week, though recent comments by Tesla Global VP Grace Tao have suggested that the business is looking to reach a more ambitious speed of 3,000 vehicles each week.

Gigafactory 3 stands as a vital part of Tesla’s strategy in China. Together with the facility in place, the electric vehicle maker would be able to compete in the country’s neighborhood EV market, which now stands as the biggest in the world. Tesla’s previous vehicles such as the Model S and Model X are well-loved, however import tariffs and their premium base price create them out of reach many EV buyers. The Model 3 will be a different story, particularly since Gigafactory 3 will exclusively produce cheap versions of the automobile for China.
