15 employees received their Model 3 cars today

今天,有15名員工接收了他們的Model 3車型



Tesla has delivered the first cars produced by its Chinese Gigafactory, just under a year after the company broke ground on its first factory located outside of the US. Reuters reports that the Model 3 vehicles were delivered to 15 of Tesla’s employees as part of a ceremony. The deliveries were made well within schedule by the company, which had previously said it wanted to begin delivering its Chinese-made cars before the Lunar New Year on January 25th. The locally-produced cars already offer a large price saving over imported models, and a Bloomberg report recently said the company could lower prices further as it cuts costs and uses more locally-sourced components.

特斯拉交付了中國超級工廠生產的第一批車輛,上海超級工廠、是該公司在美國以外的第一家工廠,該工廠破土動工還不到一年。路透社報道稱,作為儀式的一部分,Model 3交付給了特斯拉公司的15名員工。該公司按照計劃、交付十分順利。此前該公司曾表示,希望在1月25日農歷新年之前、開始交付其中國工廠生產的汽車。與進口車型相比,中國本土生產的汽車實現了大幅度降價。彭博社最近的一份報告稱,隨著成本的降低,加上使用了更多的本土零部件,該公司可能進一步降低其車型價格。

The deliveries mark an important milestone for Tesla, which hopes to use its Shanghai factory to gain a foothold in China, the world’s largest market for electric vehicles. It’s hoped that the local factory will help to speed up deliveries and insulate the company from the ongoing trade war between US and China. The Shanghai Gigafactory is the first wholly foreign-owned car plant in China.

此次交貨對特斯拉公司來說,是一個重要的里程碑,特斯拉希望利用上海工廠、在中國這個全球最大的電動汽車市場站穩腳跟,并希望上海工廠能幫助其加快交貨速度,以便讓特斯拉免受中美貿易戰的影響。上海超級汽車廠是中國第一家外商獨資汽車工廠。

The Standard Range Plus Model 3s produced in the factory will be sold for 355,800 yuan (around $50,000) before subsidies, while models imported into the country currently start at 439,000 yuan (around $63,000), according to Reuters. Next year could see prices drop further according to Bloomberg, as Tesla cuts costs and starts using more local components to reduce prices by as much as 20 percent.

據路透社報道,該廠生產的Standard Range Plus 版本的Model 3系車型在補貼之前的售價將為35.58萬元人民幣(約合5萬美元);而目前,進口車型的起價為43.9萬元人民幣(約合6.3萬美元)。據彭博社報道,明年特斯拉可能會進一步降價,因為特斯拉將會削減成本,并開始使用更多的本地零部件,這將使價格降低20%。

LESS THAN A YEAR AFTER CONSTRUCTION AT THE FACTORY STARTED

距離工廠開工建設還不到一年

Tesla signed the deal to build its third Gigafactory back in July 2018, and it follows its first two US Gigafactories in Nevada and Buffalo, New York. Tesla started construction of the Shanghai factory itself in January of this year, and by October it said it was already producing vehicles on a trial basis. Reuters notes that the factory is up and running just 357 days after construction started.

早在2018年7月,特斯拉簽署了建造第三家超級工廠的協議,此前,特斯拉在內華達州和紐約州Buffalo市分別擁有兩家美國超級工廠。今年1月,特斯拉開始了上海超級工廠的建設,到了2019年10月份、特斯拉就表示他們已經開始試生產汽車了!路透社注意到:這家工廠在開工357天后就開始運轉了!

Now, the challenge for Tesla will be ramping up production. The company has said that it hopes to produce 3,000 Model 3 cars per week by early next year, according to Electrek, increasing to as much as 500,000 vehicles a year within two to three years — an average of just under 10,000 a week — according to the agreement it originally signed with the Chinese government back in 2018.

現在,特斯拉要面臨的挑戰將是提高產能。據Electrek網站稱,特斯拉曾表示,希望在明年初之前將產能提升到每周3000輛Model 3車型,根據其在2018年與中國政府簽署的最初協議,在兩到三年內,該公司的年產能將猛增至50萬輛,平均每周略低于一萬輛。

Tesla’s speed in setting up Gigafactory 3 bodes well for Gigafactory 4, which the company’s CEO Elon Musk announced in November will be located in Berlin. The company says that it wants its European Gigafactory to be operational by 2021. Musk says his eventual plan is to build as many as 10 or 12 Gigafactories around the world.

特斯拉快速建成的超級工廠3號、預示著未來還將建設超級工廠4號,該公司CEO馬斯克(Elon Musk)11月宣布,超級工廠 4號將落戶柏林。該公司表示,希望其歐洲的超級工廠能在2021年前投入運營。馬斯克說,他的最終計劃是在世界各地建造多達10個或12個個超級工廠。
