Tesla delivers first China-made Model 3 sedans

Posted by NTV Houston on Monday, December 30, 2019

Tesla has started delivering Model 3 electric cars built at its Shanghai factory in just under a year since it began work on the $2 billion plant. 

It’s a record for global automakers in China, and the company said it would ramp up deliveries from next month.

The U.S. electric vehicle maker marked the start with an event on Monday (December 30) where 15 Tesla employees received cars they had purchased, one of whom took the opportunity to propose marriage to his girlfriend after getting his new set of wheels.

The China-made Model 3 sedans are priced at 355,800 yuan (£38,133.01) before subsidies. Imported Model 3 vehicles start at 439,000 yuan for the longer-range version, while the standard range plus model costs under $40,000 in the United States.

The Shanghai plant, up and running in just 357 days, is part of Tesla’s plans to bolster its presence in the world’s biggest car market and minimise the impact of the U.S.-China trade war.
