Tesla can’t restart Shanghai production

Tesla Shanghai Production

Kabar Medsos – Tesla has notified workers and suppliers that production at its Shanghai factory will not resume on Monday as it had hoped, according to an internal notice.

Earlier on Sunday that the US automaker aimed to resume production on Monday, citing two sources, as it expected to see its first batch of workers released from a lockdown the city imposed to combat a surge in COVID-19 cases.

However, Monday production plans have now been canceled, according to the notice, which did not elaborate on the reasons or say when the company expected activity to resume.

Production at Tesla’s Shanghai factory, which produces cars for the China market and is also a crucial export hub, has been halted since March 28 after the government launched a two-stage lockdown that started in areas east of the city’s Huangpu River where the plant is located.

Tesla (TSLA) had originally hoped to only halt operations for four days, but canceled production plans for Friday and Saturday after the authorities extended tight movement restrictions in the eastern half of the city. Virtually all of Shanghai is currently under lockdown.

The current stoppage marks one of the longest suspensions since the factory started production in late 2019. Tesla manufactures 6,000 Model 3 and 10,000 Model Y cars per week at its Shanghai factory, one of the sources said.

Tesla did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

“This was an *exceptionally* difficult quarter due to supply chain interruptions and China zero-COVID policy,” its chief executive officer Elon Musk said in a tweet on Saturday.


Tesla tidak dapat memulai kembali produksi Shanghai

Kabar Medsos – Tesla telah memberi tahu para pekerja dan pemasok bahwa produksi di pabriknya di Shanghai tidak akan dilanjutkan pada Senin seperti yang diharapkan, menurut pemberitahuan internal.

Sebelumnya, pada hari Minggu, pembuat mobil AS bertujuan untuk melanjutkan produksi pada hari Senin, karena diperkirakan akan melihat gelombang pertama pekerja dibebaskan dari penguncian kota yang diberlakukan untuk memerangi lonjakan kasus COVID-19.

Namun, rencana produksi Senin kini telah dibatalkan, menurut pemberitahuan itu, yang tidak merinci alasan atau mengatakan kapan perusahaan mengharapkan aktivitas untuk dilanjutkan.

Produksi di pabrik Tesla di Shanghai, yang memproduksi mobil untuk pasar China dan juga merupakan pusat ekspor penting, telah dihentikan sejak 28 Maret setelah pemerintah meluncurkan penguncian dua tahap yang dimulai di daerah timur Sungai Huangpu kota tempat pabrik itu berada terletak.

Tesla (TSLA) awalnya berharap hanya menghentikan operasi selama empat hari, tetapi membatalkan rencana produksi untuk Jumat dan Sabtu setelah pihak berwenang memperpanjang pembatasan pergerakan ketat di bagian timur kota. Hampir semua Shanghai saat ini dikunci.

Penghentian saat ini menandai salah satu suspensi terpanjang sejak pabrik memulai produksi pada akhir 2019. Tesla memproduksi 6.000 Model 3 dan 10.000 mobil Model Y per minggu di pabriknya di Shanghai, kata salah satu sumber.

Tesla tidak segera menanggapi permintaan komentar.

“Ini adalah kuartal yang *sangat sulit* karena gangguan rantai pasokan dan kebijakan nol-COVID China,” kata chief executive officer Elon Musk dalam sebuah tweet pada hari Sabtu.
