Sales of Chinese-made Tesla vehicles will hit 77,000 units in August, according to the CPCA secretary general. This reflects an increase of 173% from last month and 74% from August last year.

Cui Dongshu, Secretary General of the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA), said that Tesla Giga Shanghai in August 2022 is likely to register sales of about 77,000 vehicles. In his statement, he relied on sales information obtained from various sources. Keep in mind that this is only preliminary data, and exact sales figures will be published later this month and may be lower or higher than Dongshu announced.

The secretary general said that Tesla was facing a short-term shortage of parts, likely referring to the recovery period, which was in late spring, after the COVID-19 lockdown. He also said that both consumer demand and factory production were at very high levels in August. Dongshu stressed that Giga Shanghai's production capacity continues to grow.

If the figures released by the secretary general are correct, this would mean sales of Chinese-made Tesla vehicles in August were up 173% from 28,217 in July. In addition, this is also an increase of 74%, compared with 44,264 in August 2021. In addition, this would also be Tesla's second sales record since June, when the manufacturer registered 78,906 units.
