Tesla is on track to produce 600,000 electric cars in China annually

For the last three months, Tesla has maintained an impressive output of over 50,000 electric cars a month in China, showing that Gigafactory Shanghai could potentially reach an annual capacity of 600,000 electric cars.

The China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) released November statistics today and confirmed that Tesla sold 52,859 China-made vehicles in November.

21,127 of those vehicles were exported, and the rest, 31,732, were sold in China.

Even more impressive is the fact that Tesla has now maintained an output of over 50,000 vehicles per month at Gigafactory Shanghai for three months in a row.

With supply chain issues plaguing the auto industry, things can change, but right now, it looks like Gigafactory Shanghai is achieving an annualized output of over 600,000 electric cars per year.
