Tesla informed workers and suppliers that production at its Shanghai factory will not restart on Monday as it had hoped, according to an internal notice shared with Reuters.
It was reported earlier that Tesla aimed to resume production on Monday as it expected to see its first batch of workers released from a lockdown the city imposed to stop the increase of COVID-19 cases on March 28.
However, these plans have now been terminated, the notice showed, which did not mention when will the automaker resume production.
The automaker manufactures 6,000 Model 3 and 10,000 Model Y cars weekly at its Shanghai factory.
Tesla has not commented on this report yet.
CEO Elon Musk earlier wrote this week on Twitter that this “was an exceptionally difficult quarter due to supply chain interruptions and China zero-COVID policy”.
