BEIJING (Reuters) - Tesla Inc’s (TSLA.O) Shanghai Gigafactory is planning to produce two models in its first phase project, a Shanghai government filing showed on Wednesday.
The new factory, based in eastern China, aims to manufacture Model 3 and Model Y cars, with annual capacity of 250,000 vehicles, according to a filing by the environmental assessment firm conducting a feasibility study for the project.
A Tesla spokeswoman Reuters tried to reach did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Tesla signed an agreement with the Shanghai government last week for an 860,000 square meter site to secure its first overseas Gigafactory, which will cost around $2 billion to construct.
