We now get to see the stamping press in action.
Tesla is now proving that it's actually completing the entire made-in-China Model 3 production process at the Shanghai Gigafactory. There have been questions about whether or not Tesla would have to continue to build Model 3s for the Chinese market at its Fremont plant, at least until the new plant in China is up to par. However, it appears the factory is able to handle the entire process from start to finish.
We saw images of the stamping press months ago. However, there wasn't 100 percent proof that the images captured inside the Chinese Gigafactory were actually taken at Tesla's factory in China.
Tesla broke ground for Gigfactory 3 just over a year ago. The company was able to get the factory up in record time and even begin cranking out cars way ahead of expectations. Moreover, the Model 3 vehicles coming out of Gigafactory 3 appear to be in top-notch form.
Tesla has definitely had issues in the past and will continue to falter as time goes on. However, positive progress like its efforts in China, in addition to the fact that it's working on plans for a fourth manufacturing facility, which will be located near Berlin, Germany, are proving that it has the ability to succeed at a much higher level than it has in the past.
