Tesla sold 93,680 electric vehicles produced at its China factory in June. This is almost 20% more than in the same period last year. In Q2 2023, Giga Shanghai delivered 247,217 vehicles out of 466,140 delivered by the company from all factories around the world during this period.
Tesla achieved record deliveries of Chinese-made vehicles in the second quarter, according to data from the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA). The data showed that the company sold 93,680 electric vehicles (EVs) manufactured by Giga Shanghai in June. This is an 18.72% increase from a year earlier when Tesla's factory in Shanghai delivered 78,906 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles. Data on how many cars were sold locally and how many were exported is not yet available. However, in the last month of the quarter, Tesla usually focuses more on domestic supply.
The data also showed that the US manufacturer sold 247,217 Chinese-made vehicles in Q2 2023, the most ever delivered by Tesla's Chinese factory. The company reported record deliveries of 466,140 vehicles worldwide from April to June, also a record. More than half of these were sold by Giga Shanghai.
According to CPCA estimates, total sales of light vehicles powered by new energy sources increased by 30% compared to a year earlier. The electric vehicle sector in China is receiving additional support from the government, which wants to increase sales to bolster a more sustainable economic recovery.
