Giga Shanghai produces its 1,000,000th vehicle

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced this afternoon that Giga Shanghai has made its 1,000,000th vehicle.

Along with the massive news, Elon also re-confirmed that Tesla is now over the three million vehicle production mark.

At the Cyber Roundup last week, Musk confirmed that the company hit the three million mark this year.

He also noted that the company is working its way toward the two million run mark for EV production.

He said:

We’re aiming to achieve a 2 million vehicle run-rate by the end of the year. Thanks to the hard work of the Tesla team, we’ve already been able to achieve a 1.5 million unit annualized run rate. And depending on how the rest of this year goes, I think we might get close to, or will get approximately at the 1.5 million mark, and will be exiting the year at a 2 million-unit run-rate.

As is the norm, Giga Shanghai celebrated with a red Tesla, this time a Model Y.

Although this is not a massive surprise as Giga Shanghai has been pumping out vehicles at record pace, it is still an impressive milestone for the company and factory, a factory which many doubted as simply being a mud pit.

Tesla reached its 1,000,000th car-produced milestone in March 2020.

Tesla then reached the 2,000,000 mark in July 2022.

With four factories now up and running, four million Tesla‘s produced is only around the corner.
