Europe is completely switching to electricity. European Union plans to register only electric vehicles from 2035

Tesla has halted much of its production at its Shanghai plant due to problems with EV parts, Reuters reported. According to an internal memo, the plant plans to produce fewer than 200 vehicles on Tuesday. Two people familiar with the matter said earlier that supply issues forced the plant to halt production on Monday.

Shanghai has been tightening its COVID-19 lockdown for the sixth week now. Last week, Tesla planned to ramp up production to pre-lockdown levels, but the plans fell through. The China Passenger Car Association plans to release April sales data for Tesla, China’s second-largest electric vehicle maker after BYD, on Tuesday.

Another automobile association said last week that it estimated overall car sales in China fell 48% in April as COVID-19 lockdowns closed factories, restricted showroom traffic and reduced expenses. Aptiv, Tesla’s main wiring supplier, has stopped deliveries from a Shanghai plant that supplies Tesla and General Motors Co after cases of COVID-19 were found among its workers.

Tesla’s Shanghai plant, also known as Gigafactory 3, builds the Model 3 sedan and Model Y crossover for the Chinese market and for export. Tesla partially resumed production at its Shanghai plant on April 19 after a 22-day hiatus. The plant was turning out approximately 1,200 vehicles per day and hoped to ramp up to 2,600 vehicles per day from May 16th.

In addition, Tesla has confirmed plans to build a second plant in Shanghai.
