Tesla Giga Shanghai sold 74,073 vehicles in September in China. In Q3, factory sales reached 222,517 units, accounting for 51.15 percent of Tesla’s global deliveries.
According to data released on September 8 by the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA), Tesla sold 74,073 Chinese-made vehicles in September. This number includes both domestic sales and exports. It reflects a decrease of 11.98 percent from the 84,159 units in August and a 10.9 percent decrease from the 83,135 units in the same month last year.
It should be noted that in mid-August, Giga Shanghai switched to production of the updated Model 3, so it will take time to ramp up production. Sales data for September showed that the factory is still in the ramp-up phase.
Tesla sold 222,517 Chinese-made vehicles in the third quarter, according to CnEVPost. This is 18.16 percent more than last year. However, this is 9.99 percent less than in the second quarter, which is natural given the changes in the production process.
Tesla sold 699,056 Chinese-made vehicles between January and September. This is a 44.71 percent increase over last year. The final data for the full year will be very interesting, since at the moment, Giga Shanghai is the most highly productive Tesla factory in the world.
In Q3, Tesla delivered 435,059 vehicles worldwide. This is 26.53 percent more than last year. This means that vehicles produced at Giga Shanghai accounted for 51.15 percent of the company’s total deliveries in the third quarter. Once Giga Shanghai ramps up production again, the factory will once again increase its share of Tesla’s global deliveries.
