Long-range rear-wheel drive Model 3 will be produced but may be delayed due to the epidemic

Electric car maker Tesla is currently seeking approval from Chinese regulators to produce the Long Range RWD Model 3 in China.

It is reported that Tesla will produce the long-range rear-wheel drive version of the Model 3 at its “Gigafactory 3” in Shanghai.

Previously, Tesla announced that it would stop selling the long-range rear-wheel-drive version of the Model 3. The company’s main model is likely to be an all-wheel-drive version, since this version of the Model 3 has higher profit margins.

  

The first version of the Model 3, a long-range rear-wheel drive version, launched in mid-2017. When this version of the Model 3 was first introduced, Tesla offered it a long-range battery pack and a rear-wheel-drive configuration.

Since this version of the Model 3 isn’t available on Tesla’s website, there’s no word on its availability or price just yet.

Earlier, when announcing that the Model 3 would be produced in China, Tesla Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Elon Musk had said that the company would only produce the low-end Model 3 in China and the high-end Model 3 It will still be produced in Fremont, California.

Last month alone, Tesla reportedly produced 2,625 Chinese-made Model 3s at its Gigafactory in Shanghai, a production that made Tesla China’s fifth-largest electric car maker that month. It is reported that production of the China-made Model 3 officially went on track in January this year after trial production at the end of 2019.

The Model 3 is a production car that will play a key role in helping the electric car maker continue to grow while remaining sustainable.

In Tesla’s fourth-quarter 2019 earnings report last month, the company confirmed that it had achieved a production rate of 1,500 vehicles per week.

Previously, Tesla had to temporarily close its Shanghai factory due to the impact of the new coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, which will delay the production and delivery of the domestic Model 3.
