In June, Tesla sold a new record 14,954 domestic model 3s in China, accounting for 23 percent of the country’s electric car market, according to the CPCA, according tomedia reports. In June, domestic Sales of the Tesla Model 3 were 14,954, up 35% month-on-month, while domestic Tesla Model 3 sold 11,095 units in May, up 205 percent from a year earlier, and the domestic Tesla Model 3 fell 64 percent in April from 3,635, according to data released by the federation.
May’s sales figures also allowed the Tesla Model 3 to take back the title of the best-selling model in China from BYD’s Qin Pro all-electric sedan.
Sales of all-electric vehicles in China fell 40 per cent year-on-year in June, but Tesla’s market share rose 23 per cent, thanks to growing sales of its model 3, the federation said on Wednesday.
While Model 3 sales in China have grown relatively relatively, Tesla is expected to see a big increase in the coming year as the expansion of the company’s Shanghai super plant will allow it to start producing Model Y for the Chinese market at a reasonably reasonable price.
If Tesla and its construction partners maintain the current pace of construction, Model Y could begin trial production later this year.
On July 2, Tesla reported better-than-expected second-quarter deliveries. In the second quarter, the company produced more than 82,000 electric cars and delivered about 90,650 vehicles, well above expectations of 74,130.
