SMM: according to Tesla's official website, the delivery time of, Model Y models has been shortened from 4-6 weeks to 2-4 weeks. This means that North American customers will be able to receive their car orders by the end of the third quarter.

According to media reports, the acceleration of Tesla's production is related to the casting machine that was recently put into use at the Fremont plant. Tesla China released information on the production of Model Y in the media on Aug. 24, in which a statement said that the huge casting machine had been put into use at the Fremont plant. At the same time, the installation of the GA 4.5 production line dedicated to the production of Model Y models has been completed in this factory.

While accelerating the delivery of the Model Y model, the delivery time of the Model 3 in North America is also 2-4 weeks. The reduction in production time for Model 3 can also be partly attributed to the new independent assembly line of Model Y, as the production of Model Y now does not occupy the Model 3 production line.

The delivery time for, Model S and Model X varies from 5 to 14 weeks depending on the region. New car owners can expect to get their cars in the fourth quarter.

Media said Tesla continued to improve his car manufacturing capacity and further shorten the delivery time. If the super factories in Shanghai and Berlin start producing Model Y, Tesla's logistics burden will be greatly reduced. The Model Y is one of the most popular models in the world. As the delivery time of Tesla cars, especially Model Y, is shortened, Tesla's sales are likely to soar further.

"2020 (second) China Automotive New Materials Application Summit Forum"

It was solemnly held in Shanghai from September 17 to 18.

During the reform period of the "four modernizations of the automobile", intelligent network connection, new energy, lightweight and intelligent manufacturing entered the field of the automobile industry, and the automobile era was reinterpreted. The surging changes require the industry to continue to integrate and innovate, and quickly promote the development rate of automobile enterprises. With the emergence of self-driving and intelligent cars, Internet companies, which are not active in the automotive field, have more opportunities to show their talents; the double points policy is becoming an important driving force for the development of China's new energy vehicle industry; in the face of environmental constraints, car companies speed up the application of advanced lightweight components and technologies to achieve vehicle weight loss. With the continuous promotion of the strategies of "Industrial 4.0" and "made in China 2025", intelligent manufacturing has become a new challenge of upgrading and transformation.

Under the guidance of the Shanghai Economic and Informatization Commission and the Shanghai Federation of Industrial economy, in order to accelerate the application of automobile lightweight and product lines, the Shanghai Nonferrous Metals Industry Association, together with Shanghai Automotive Engineering Society, Suzhou Die casting Technology Association and Shanghai Nonferrous Network, jointly held the "2020 (second) China Automotive New Materials Application Summit Forum". Jointly discuss material solutions, co-casting automobile industry chain green development closed loop, and strive to build an excellent communication and cooperation platform for the whole automobile industry chain, and lead the creation of advanced automobile industry clusters.
