Tesla’s China Output Halted for Days Last Month on Chip Shortage
Shortage of electronic control units was a particular problem
Production line paused for at least four days, has now resumed
Tesla Inc. temporarily halted some operations at its factory in Shanghai last month, according to people familiar with the matter, as the global shortage of semiconductors hit the electric-car maker in one of its most important markets.
Part of a production line at the China plant was halted for about four days in August because of a lack of key chips, the people said, asking not to be identified because the details are private.
