Tesla Delivered 62,493 Vehicles in China in November

Amidst rumors of demand issues hitting Tesla’s Gigafactory in China, the automaker is still posting record delivery numbers heading into the final month of the year.

Tesla delivered 62,493 vehicles in China in November, while Giga Shanghai also exported 37,798 vehicles, according to data shared by the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) on Thursday (via CnEVPost).

These figures mean Tesla sold 100,291 vehicles built at its Shanghai plant in November, representing an 89.73 percent increase year-over-year and a 39.87 percent boost from the automaker’s 71,704 units delivered in October.

Tesla’s November sales comprised 68,098 Model Y units and 31,193 Model 3 units.

Between January and the end of November, Tesla sold 655,069 vehicles built at Giga Shanghai, marking a 62.86 percent jump from the same 11-month period in 2021.

Tesla’s delivery wait times for Model 3 and Model Y orders in China have dropped over the past few weeks, now displaying estimated arrivals of December 2022 for all trim options.

Prices on Tesla’s Model 3 and Model Y have also dropped multiple times in recent months, which has caused some investors and onlookers to raise warnings of lowering demand and a pressing need to offload inventory.

The news also comes just as reports indicate that Tesla plans to shorten shifts and cut back on onboarding at Giga Shanghai.
