Tesla China has started construction on Phase 2 of Gigafactory 3 Shanghai. The upcoming building could be for the upcoming China-made Model Y program.

Drone operator Jason Yang recently shared footage of the construction site in his most recent video. Yang refers to the site as the third phase in his video. However, some refer to the previous building as Phase 1.5 because it is technically an extension of Giga Shanghai Phase 1, which houses the MIC Model 3 Standard Range Plus assembly line.

Tesla has yet to announce its plans for Gigafactory 3’s Phase 2 building, but it could potentially be used for China’s Model Y program. Elon Musk launched Tesla China’s Model Y program in January this year during the MIC Model 3’s official delivery event.

The MIC Model Y program’s launch meant that Tesla’s Giga Shanghai has already started R&D work, research, and other preparations for the affordable all-electric SUV crossover’s production. Still, neither Elon Musk nor Tesla China has announced when actual Model Y production will being in Gigafactory 3, but the groundwork seems to have started already.

Given the pace Tesla China sets for work, Phase 2 would theoretically be finished in time for Model Y assembly to begin–at least the initial release candidate versions of Tesla’s SUV crossover–sooner rather than later.

Work on the second part of Tesla’s Giga Shanghai seemed to started immediately after Phase 1.5, otherwise known as the Battery and Powertrain workshop, was finished. Based on a previous Tesmanian report, the shell of Tesla China’s Battery and Powertrain facility appeared to be near completion in December. So, Giga Shanghai must have worked on fully finishing the exterior as well as the interior of Phase 1.5 for the last couple of months.

Since work on Phase 2 has started, however, Tesla China hasn’t made any announcements about the seemingly finished Battery and Powertrain facility. Its silence is notable because news about the MIC Model 3’s new CATL cobalt-free battery has been covered extensively for the last couple of weeks. Although, Tesla China may be waiting for Battery Day to make any announcements about Giga Shanghai’s completed Phase 1.5.

Either way, Tesla’s Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai has obviously been working hard since its return from an extended holiday break due to COVID-19. Now, Giga Shanghai is busy catching up with Model 3 deliveries all over China.

    Where do the Chinese find the space to build anything?.. The country has about the same habitable land mass as the 48 states, but China has about 4 times the number of people.

    Yes Wolf, regarding the current new construction at Tesla Shanghai, the original plan was to build phase 3 model Y assy plant opposite phase 1 ( mirror image excluding stamping shop), with additional battery assembly in the south east corner. BUT Tesla takes a fluid and pragmatic approach to GF3 development, so it's anyone's guess if the current production push is model Y plant relocated or battery assy.

    In the short term (until end March) this outlook might be too optimistic. After all, car sales in China for February were down about 80% – I cannot imagine this did not affect Tesla. It will probably take a few months to catch up, even if the Corona Virus epidemic recedes, which is far from sure. And even then, 3000 per month is not THAT much. They aim for 150k per year – for that you need some 12k per month or 3k per week. Still, in the longer run (end of year and beyond) your optimism is most probable right.

    Let's just take a moment to understand and appreciate the market dominance of Tesla in China is a short time and then look at how their technology is being used to circumvent the person to person contact that is putting so many business either on standby or hold. Summon is the obvious solution to car deliveries in China and I am looking forward to the day when my car will be ordered online… and delivered to my door. This virus just showed this as a closer real life probability for me to experience that in the future.
