Just six weeks after the announcement, the automaker began deliveries of the first units to some lucky customers on Wednesday.

The Chinese version of the LR RWD Model 3 comes equipped with a 77kWh battery pack, fairly close to the battery pack that was used in the now discontinued North American version.

The Model 3 Long Range in China starts at ¥344,000 (around ~$67,400) after incentives.

Tesla China VP Tao Lin recently announced that Giga Shanghai will meet its targeted mid-year production goal of 4,000 units per day by next month. Lin also revealed the Model Y will begin production and deliveries in Q1 2021.
