Tesla Set to Increase Production in Shanghai by Mid-May

The Index Today

Tesla Inc. is set to recommence operations at its Shanghai plant by the middle of May as it rebounds from worker shortage and supply scarcity woes.

According to Bloomberg News, this comes after the company was compelled to temporarily suspend production at its Shanghai factory for three weeks in April after the Chinese government imposed a lockdown on the city in an effort to control the spread of the virus, as the country battles its worst COVID-19 outbreak since March, 2020.

Following this, Tesla was able to restart activity at its Shanghai plant through a closed-loop system which saw factory workers living and working at the factory, having to complete 12-hour shifts for six days per week. As per Bloomberg News, the world’s largest electric vehicle (EV) maker is now planning on hiring and retaining more staff in a bid to restart double shifts after previously having its personnel work three shifts for seven days a week.

However, even as the carmaker looks to resume double shifts, its Shanghai plant is still faced with the issue of parts shortages, reported Bloomberg News.
