In an interview with the Financial Times, Elon Musk said that Tesla may soon stop taking orders for some electric vehicles.
He clarified that the problem is not with high demand, but with production:
Musk did not give an official reason, but CNBC notes that Tesla cut car production at its Shanghai plant this week due to a shortage of parts caused in part by the coronavirus lockdown.
According to the CEO of JL Warren Capital and head of research Junheng Li, the authorities temporarily closed this Aptiv plant, which produced the cable harness used in the Tesla Model Y.
Sources also confirmed to Reuters that the Tesla plant in Shanghai has temporarily suspended work due to a shortage of necessary parts. [Mashable]
