A shorter delivery time means that the supply of new cars improved over demand. Tesla Giga Shanghai plant upgraded its factory and operations earlier this year and noted a record level of output in August. This comes at the same time when Tesla Giga Berlin is ramping up the production of the Model Y cars that are being sold across European markets. This eventually reduces pressure from the Tesla Giga Shanghai that produces cars for the China and European market. The reduced demand from Europe for made-in-China models has prompted Giga Shanghai to focus more on the Chinese market and reduce the waiting period for the customers there.
