Tesla Already Exports MIC Model 3 From China To Europe

A customer in France found “Model 3 – China” info in the papers.

Tesla seems to have already started production and export of Made-in-China Model 3 for European customers, which was hinted at several times recently.

According to Green Drive‘s report, a French customer has discovered “Model 3 – China” on his deposit invoice for the Standard Range Plus car. The VIN number “LRW-XXXXXLCXXX” supports the guess.

Moreover, we know that there was a 10-day pause (20-30 September) at the Tesla Gigafactory 3 for annual production line inspections and equipment upgrades. In the videos, we later saw some Model 3 cars, prepared differently than usual (with protective film on body parts). We can guess that those are cars were scheduled for the long journey to Europe.
