Customer deliveries in Europe are expected in November.
According to the latest media reports from China, the first Made-in-China Model 3 shipment from the Giga Shanghai to Europe is around 7,000 cars.
We saw probably more than 1,000 MIC Model 3 in the port several days ago, but 7,000 is way more than we expected. It would be also more than a week of production at three-shifts.
The company has even held a ceremony to commemorate the milestone with a cool TESLA sign, made up of cars.
The journey to Belgium will start tomorrow and will take a few weeks we guess. The first deliveries are expected at some point in November.
At least at first, only the entry-level Standard Range Plus versions, equipped with CATL’s LFP lithium-ion cells, will be exported to Europe
In many ways, it’s a crucial step for Tesla (shifting part of the production from the U.S. to China, new batteries) and we will look carefully at how it will pay off.
