According to news report, Tesla has resumed its delivery service for Model 3 (China version). Due to the epidemic in Wuhan China, the Shanghai Super Factory was temporarily suspended that led to the suspension of delivery.
The recent outbreak had a huge impact on various companies including Tesla, while previously the company has announced its suspension of delivering Model 3 in China because of the news, that also led to a good amount of decline in the stock price of the company.
Additionally, Chinese consumers who were looking forward to having the cars in their parking areas right after the Spring Festival had to wait for a long time because of the suspension.
On 10th Feb, the Shanghai factory of Tesla has restarted its process of production. Apart from Tesla, LG Chem who is a domestic provider for Model 3 battery has also restarted their work.
