Tesla has begun delivering its first Model S and Model X units in Mainland China, as celebrated by the company on Wednesday in a post on Twitter.

Photos included with the post show buyers posing with their Model S and Model X units at one of Tesla’s showrooms. There are numerous balloons, flowers, teddy bears, bows on cars and more to celebrate the event.

Tesla’s Model S and X deliveries were officially launched in China earlier this week, after the first units arrived at a port in China just a few weeks ago, as delivered from the company’s Fremont, California factory.

Pricing for the Model S and X for buyers in China was revealed just a few months ago, when Tesla also unveiled its newly cut Model 3 and Model Y pricing in markets around the world.

Last month, Tesla completed a customs inspection for its Model S and X units, indicating that the company’s plans to launch the vehicles were imminent.

Tesla had the Model S and X touring showrooms last November, ahead of plans to begin selling the vehicles in the country this year.

Other reports from last year detailed the likely immediacy of Tesla’s first Model S and X deliveries, including screenshots from supposed owners of the premium vehicles in China, and a sighting of a Model S Plaid being unloaded from a truck in the country.
