The Tesla China team has done a great job in order for the Chinese to get their Made in China Model 3 as soon as possible.
Under the influence of the coronavirus epidemic on February 2, Tesla temporarily closed all offline stores in mainland China and began selling cars via the Internet. Tesla took the initiative to open online car sales during the Spring Festival. It attracted TikTok influencers for an information campaign in several cities. They talked about Tesla China products and services. All the livestreams took place at the Tesla Experience Center in China.

It also became known that Tesla plans to begin mass delivery of Made in China Model 3 in the near future, and this was the reason that store employees and influencers conducted online consultations for those who wanted to buy a car. During the livestreams, they provided people with accurate information about the MIC Model 3, talked about the functions of Autopilot and Smart Summon, and explained about the car's safety functions.
Tesla representatives said that the development of the company in China is in full swing and urged more users to book cars online.
It has just become known that Tesla stores in mainland China will resume operations on February 17. This is great news. Now everyone can come to the store, inspect the car and conduct a test drive. The epidemic has greatly affected all of China, but now people can begin the resumption of their usual way of life.

Another good news was that for delivery users, Tesla also launched a door-to-door delivery service. The store staff can send the purchased car directly to the place indicated by the buyer, which is very convenient for Tesla Chinese customers.
The work of Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai was also suspended in connection with the epidemiological situation in the country. But on February 10, Tesla Giga Shanghai is officially resumed work, becoming one of the earliest batch of car companies in China to resume work.
