According to drone footage released on Friday, the automaker Tesla has nearly 9,000 vehicles ready to ship at Shanghai’s Southport Terminal, in China. According to Tesla’s enthusiast and investor Sawyer Merritt, the batch represents a new record for the company indicating that the output at the most productive Gigafactory might be increasing.

China’s CPCA data was released last week reporting that Tesla China delivered 28,217 vehicles in July of which 19,756 were exported. The result represents a decrease of 64% from June due to three shutdowns at Tesla’s GigaShanghai aiming to upgrade the production for the upcoming months.

In July, the GigaFactory was shut down from the first day of the month until the 4th while Model Y line was shut down from July 1-18, and Model 3 line started was shut down from July 18 until the past Monday, August 8.

Recently, Tesla announced its Q2 2022 Earnings Results reporting total revenue of $16.9 billion (up 42% year-over-year) and a 14.6% operating margin saying it expects to achieve “50% average annual growth in vehicle deliveries” confirming the previous guidance.
