Tesla Fremont Vehicle Assembly Plant
Tesla Fremont’s vehicle assembly plant, which began shutting down after march 23, has been shut down for more than a month and a half, and has not produced electric vehicles since it was shut down, retaining only the personnel who maintain basic operations.
After the Fremont plant reopens and resumes production, it will take some time for capacity to reach pre-discontinuation levels for a number of reasons.
First, during the shutdown, Tesla upgraded the plant, and after it resumed production, it will take some time for employees to adapt to the upgraded production line. Upgrade after the transformation of the production line, will inevitably add new equipment, new equipment will take some time to run in order to achieve the best state.
Second, Tesla electric vehicle production needs batteries, electric motors and many other components supply, assembly plant to resume production, but also need parts factory cooperation, if the supply of parts can not keep up with demand, the vehicle’s production capacity will be difficult to reach the pre-discontinuation level. Among Tesla’s components, batteries are one of the most important, and the SuperBattery Plant, which supplies the Model 3, has also been shut down after March 23 and has not yet reopened.
Tesla forced the reopening of its vehicle assembly plant in Fremont last week, failing to comply with the requirements of the health care services department in Armida County, where the plant is located, and began producing electric vehicles and requiring employees to return to the plant.
After learning that Tesla had forced the opening of its vehicle assembly plant in Fremont, The Midida County Health Care Services department informed Tesla on Monday that it would only maintain basic operations and stop making electric vehicles.
But after a meeting with Tesla representatives on Tuesday, Amida County officials said Tesla could redevelop the plant next week after meeting certain criteria. Armida County officials were referring to the next week, this week.
