As you know, Tesla is launching Model Y electric vehicles in China. In this regard, the manufacturer has opened orders. The interest in the car was so great that the quarterly production was sold out in just a few days.
We previously reported that Tesla is using a new strategy to bring Model Y to new markets. Electric cars don’t come from Tesla’s California plant as they did with other models. Instead, Tesla will only introduce Model Y to the new market after it masters local production.
Tesla’s Shanghai facility has more than doubled in size over the past nine months to prepare for the production of an electric SUV. In November, the automaker received approval from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology to manufacture Model Y in China. Production started some time ago.
In the Chinese market, Model Y prices start at $ 52,000.
How many Model Ys the company expects to produce during the quarter is unknown.
