Tesla Shanghai Production Hits New Record Despite Coronavirus Slowdown

•, By: Tom Moloughney

While that might not sound too impressive compared to Model 3 sales in the US market, consider that in every month of Q1, the Model 3 was the top-selling electric vehicle in China.

In January Tesla delivered 3,183 Model 3s in China. That dropped to 2,284 in February as China was fully embroiled in the Coronavirus shutdown and lockdown at the time. The situation there had reportedly gotten better and in March, as businesses began to open again, Tesla deliveries shot up to 3,900, more than double that of the next best-selling EV in China. 

Loaded with that information, the YouTube channel HyperChange takes a look at Tesla's current position in China and makes some bold predictions about where Tesla's Model 3 sales in China might look like in Q2.
