Tesla sold 75,842 vehicles manufactured by Giga Shanghai in April. This is an increase of almost 5,000% compared to the same period last year when the factory was hit by the COVID-19 measures.
Tesla sold 75,842 Chinese-made vehicles in April, according to data released today by the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA). This includes both domestic sales and exports. This reflects an increase of 4916.01% compared to 1,512 units sold in April 2022. However, this is 14.66% less than the 88,869 units sold in March.
Last April, Tesla experienced production disruptions in China when Giga Shanghai was closed. At the end of March, Shanghai was quarantined due to COVID-19 and all factories in the city were suspended.
So far, CPCA has only released aggregated Giga Shanghai sales data for April. More information on how many and which models were sold locally and exported will be available in the coming days.
In the four months of 2023 (January-April), sales of Chinese-made Tesla vehicles amounted to 305,164 vehicles. This is a 66.13% increase compared to 183,686 vehicles in the same period in 2022.
