Tesla has cut production of its Model 3 cars for more than a week at its facility in Palo Alto, California due to supply disruptions.
According to media reports, the US-headquartered EV maker’s employees on the Model 3 assembly line were informed that the line would be temporarily paused from Feb 22.
Reports attributed the halt to supply issues after road transport was affected by the snowstorms across the country. Some reports indicate that the production cut could also be because of the lower demand at present since the carmaker was overstocked at the end of 2020.
The impact of this shutdown on Tesla’s monthly production was not disclosed, but the facility has an annual production capability of about 600,000 units per year.
