(Bloomberg) — Tesla Inc. finished upgrading production lines at its Shanghai factory on Monday and is testing them until Nov. 30 as it doubles the plant’s annual output to 1 million vehicles.

The upgrade took nine months, according to a document filed to the Shanghai government’s environmental information disclosures platform.

Tesla will lift Model Y output in Shanghai to about 14,000 SUVs a week from about 11,000 pre-pandemic, while Model 3 sedan production will rise to 7,700 units from 5,500, Bloomberg News has reported.
