Tesla Inc.’s China operations are back in full swing after an upgrade to its factory in Shanghai and a Covid-19 lockdown in the city slowed production earlier this year.  

Elon Musk’s electric-car maker delivered 76,965 Chinese-made vehicles in August, just shy of June’s record 77,938 and a sharp rebound from 28,217 in July, when assembly lines at Tesla’s plant in Shanghai were suspended for upgrades to double annual capacity to about 1 million units.
