Troy Teslike: Tesla China expected to deliver more than 100,000 electric cars in September
At the beginning of August, data released by the China Passenger Car Association showed that in July this year, Tesla China sold about 28,217 Chinese-made vehicles, a decrease of 64.2% compared with the 78,906 in June this year, and a decrease of 64.2% compared with July last year. Compared with the 32,968 units in 2018, a year-on-year decrease of 14.41% was due to the interruption of production due to the planned upgrade of the production line of its Shanghai Gigafactory.
In the second quarter 2022 financial report released in July, Tesla said that due to the capacity upgrade of the Shanghai factory, the annual production capacity of the factory has exceeded 750,000 vehicles, making it the highest-producing super factory under Tesla for the first time. It surpassed Tesla’s Fremont, California factory for the first time.
Earlier this month, the China Passenger Transport Association said that in August this year, Tesla China sold 77,000 Chinese-made vehicles, a month-on-month increase of 173% and a year-on-year increase of 74%.
Currently, Tesla produces the domestic Model 3 and Model Y at its Shanghai Gigafactory, which produces cars not only for the domestic market but also for foreign markets.
