Tesla posts strong sales numbers in China despite Coronavirus outbreak

It seems like the only things the Coronavirus can’t slow down are toilet paper sales, and Tesla. The automaker has so far managed to brush off the effects of the outbreak and deliver a lot of electric vehicles (EV’s).

Tesla China announced it delivered 3,958 EV’s in February 2020, according to a report from Baystreet. That accounts for nearly 30% of all EV’s in the country, which has largely been brought to a standstill in an effort to contain the spread of the virus.

The strong numbers from Tesla are in stark comparison to other automakers as Chinese auto sales dropped 80%, as they struggled to get consumers into dealerships and showrooms.

Therein lies one of the many advantages Tesla has over legacy automakers – you can order your car online in just minutes.
