The automaker announced the deliveries by sharing a series of images on their Twitter account showing the lucky new owners taking possession.

China is a key market for Tesla, and the introduction of the electric SUV may be the biggest and most important launch for the automaker. The Model 3 quickly became the most popular electric vehicle (EV) in the country after its launch just one year ago. The Model Y will mark Tesla’s entry into the much larger SUV market in the country.

If early estimates are true, it is already proving to be very popular among buyers. Customers placing an order today are already seeing estimated delivery dates into the second quarter.

Giga Shanghai is doing their best to keep up with demand. The factory is targeting to produce 550,000 vehicles in 2021, with 250,000 of those being Model Y’s.

The Long Range (LR) Model Y built out of Giga Shanghai starts at ¥ 339,900 ($66,277 CAD). The Performance variant starts at ¥ 369,900 ($72,126 CAD).
