Tesla’s Shanghai plant in China is using cost-cutting manufacturing methods to produce Model Y vehicles, according to a report by Chinese state media Shanghai Securities News. The report highlights that the company has implemented integrated casting for the rear production of the Model Y. Tesla has been at the forefront of innovation in car manufacturing, pioneering the use of large presses with clamping pressures of 6,000 to 9,000 tons in a process known as “gigacasting” to mold the front and rear structures of the Model Y. This breakthrough has significantly reduced production costs. It is important to note that the method is not new and only applies to the rear production of the vehicle.
