However, its construction cost is about 65% lower than that of the model 3 production line in the United States (based on capital expenditure per unit capacity). Continuous sales growth and cost control are an important combination to achieve sustainable and industry-leading profitability. This also means that the price of domestic model 3, the first model of Shanghai factory, is expected to be significantly reduced compared with the imported version.
