    Or approximately 12,000 TM3 a month!

    Has there been confirmation that the Model 3 production line has started again?

    I'm pretty sure those are heading to Ontario. How do I know this? I don't. Just wishful thinking.

    I doubt there will be any official confirmation. Since we are way over a week removed from when the shutdowns were reported, I'm nearly sure production has started already.

    Not direct / official confirmation, but people are reporting receiving VINs at a higher rate than during the shutdown. (See the spreadsheet in the sticky thread above or my site that pulls and charts the same data).

    VINs are one data point, a bit weak data point.

    The hard and irrefutable data point is seeing the lot fill up and cars getting hauled out at a steady high rate.

    My brother in Phoenix was originally supposed to pick up his Model 3 TODAY. He now gets to pick it up next Tuesday. DUH I think that means something is happening at the factory.

    It got pushed back 4 days. That's about the duration of the pause; so you're thinking it means the pause is over?

    He texted me at 11:27 pm on 04/15 just before the shut down, expecting his car TODAY 05/27. He just texted me that he will pick up his car next Tuesday May 1.
