Tesla Model 3/Y Delivery Wait Times Improve in China
Tesla has cut its delivery times in China, with its Model 3 and Y units now delivering in as little as one week, according to a report from CnEVPost.
All of its trim options for both the automaker’s entry-level sedan and SUV now have delivery estimates ranging from one to five weeks, as spotted on Tesla’s order configurator website.
The Model 3 has two versions available in China and the Model Y has three, all of which are produced at Tesla’s Gigafactory Shanghai.
Tesla’s rear-wheel-drive Model Y previously took one to four weeks to delivery, while the rest of the automaker’s models had delivery estimates ranging from four to eight weeks.

The news comes just a few months after Tesla’s Giga Shanghai performed production upgrades, significantly increasing annual capacity. With the upgrades, Tesla’s Giga Shanghai is now expected to be able to produce around 1.1 million vehicles per year.
It also comes just a couple weeks after Tesla unveiled the Model S and X Plaid editions became available in China, though both of the automaker’s luxury models are being imported from the company’s Fremont, California factory.
Tesla also boosted its insurance incentives on purchases made in November in China, ahead of its end-of-year delivery push.
