  After the epidemic, Shanghai auto industry is speeding up the resumption of production and working hours. Head factories including Tesla Giga Shanghai and Lingang Factory of SAIC Passenger Car Company have resumed double-shift production.

  According to the data released by SAIC on the 9th, in May, the company sold 364,000 vehicles, which is gradually coming out of the epidemic. Among them, the sales volume of new energy vehicles was nearly 72,000, up 56.6% year-on-year. Sales in overseas markets reached 86,000 vehicles, a year-on-year increase of 97%.

  Faced with the severe challenges brought by the epidemic, SAIC actively promoted the industrial chain and supply chain to resume production while doing a solid job in various epidemic prevention work, and continued to accelerate the pace of production and sales recovery. On May 27th, the Lingang factory of SAIC Passenger Car Company started the double-shift production stress test. At present, the production capacity is about twice that of the single-shift production, which is close to 80% of the full production.

  With the effective control of the epidemic, the supply chain of the automobile industry chain in the Yangtze River Delta region is gradually returning to normal. It is expected that from mid-June, SAIC Passenger Car Company, SAIC Volkswagen and SAIC General Motors will all achieve double-shift production, and SAIC Group’s production and sales are expected to return to growth.

  The reporter learned from Tesla China that since the resumption of production on April 19th, Tesla Giga Shanghai has now rolled off more than 40,000 vehicles, and the capacity utilization rate has returned to 100%. At the same time, this factory also actively promotes and helps the overall industrial chain to resume work efficiently, and promotes the industrial chain of new energy vehicles to return to normal as soon as possible from production to logistics and from sales to delivery.

  According to the data released by the Association, the wholesale sales volume of Tesla in May was 32,165, of which 22,340 were exported to Europe, Australia, Japan and other places. From January to May this year, Tesla delivered a total of 215,851 vehicles, a year-on-year increase of over 50%.

  Tesla’s hundreds of suppliers are not only spread all over the country, but also include many overseas supply links. Relevant departments have promoted and boosted the supply of key parts and warehousing and logistics, and Tesla’s resumption of work has driven relevant industrial chains to resume work and resume production.

  The factory production of the head enterprise has been accelerated, and the self-driving enterprises in the research and development period are also "grabbing working hours".

  The 5G+L4 smart heavy truck project of Youdao Zhitu, a science and technology company in the field of automatic driving, tested "non-stop" under the epidemic situation and "grabbed working hours" by returning to work in batches and stages. According to the plan, by the end of 2022, the downsizing test conducted by enterprises on Donghai Bridge will be gradually reduced from the current five safety officers to two safety officers, that is, except for the head car and the tail car, there will be no safety officers in the middle three cars, so as to achieve a higher degree of autonomous driving operation. This measure is expected to effectively improve the traffic efficiency of Donghai Bridge by 30% to 40%.

  The brand-new unmanned pure electric intelligent transfer vehicle independently developed by Youdao Zhitu can realize 24-hour unmanned operation in ports and docks. During the epidemic, the trial production team took the initiative to close the scientific research work, and completed the first car off-line and site dynamic test as originally planned. According to the plan, the unmanned pure electric intelligent transfer vehicle will start commercial operation in Qingdao port in the second half of the year.
