Tesla has officially opened the largest Sales and Delivery Center in China today, with a brand new facility that is bigger than the size of two football fields.

The new Sales and Delivery Center opened today, September 9, in Beijing’s Xiedao District. The building is approximately 127,000 square feet (11,800 square meters) in size with 101 parking spots at the rear of the building designated especially for deliveries.

Images of the facility shared by Tesla China show the delivery area is already packed with dozens of Model Y vehicles ready to be delivered to their new owners.

There is also a showroom area at the front of the building where perspective customers can view the locally built Model 3 and Model Y, as well as schedule test drives.

Critics like to say that demand for Tesla vehicles is declining in China, even though sales from homegrown EV automakers like NIO and XPeng have yet to surpass that of the Model 3 and Model Y. Recent data from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) shows that as a result, Tesla has received far more subsidies from the Chinese government in 2020 than both local automakers.

With the recent introduction of the Standard Range (SR) Model Y, which qualifies for local subsidies, this new Sales and Delivery Center in China’s capital city is likely going to be very busy, sending out hundreds of new vehicles every day.
