Tesla sold 100,291 China-made vehicles in November

CNA – Tesla Inc delivered 100,291 China-made electric vehicles (EVs) in November, the highest monthly sales since its Shanghai factory opened in late 2020, a Xinhua report said yesterday.

The number marks a 40 per cent increase from October and 89.7 per cent more than a year earlier after the United States automaker ramped up output at the Shanghai plant, cut prices for the best-selling models and offered incentives to Chinese buyers.

However, BYD led all brands in China’s November EV sales at 229,942 electric cars including plug-in hybrids and pure EVs, three times more than a year earlier and more than double Tesla’s tally, China Passenger Car Association data shows.
