If according to the official statement, this is just a Christmas holiday with annual production line maintenance, not a real shutdown, I'm afraid it doesn't make sense. Going back to Christmas in 2021, the Tesla Shanghai factory did not have a long holiday. In fact, the last 1 month of each season Weeks are usually the busiest time for Tesla, when the production line must be fully fired and sprint to deliver cars, and Tesla is currently experiencing a slowdown in demand in China.

Therefore, even if the Chinese media or Tesla refute the foreign media reports, judging from the current situation, the epidemic may still be the main reason for the shutdown of factories. Since China has relaxed epidemic prevention restrictions, without complete supporting measures, it will disrupt the production and operation of enterprises in the short term. For commercial activities, Tesla China has also extended the delivery time of Model 3 and Model Y to 1-4 weeks.
