Tesla Model Y customer deliveries in China to begin this month


Tesla Model Y deliveries in China will gradually begin this month, according to the VP of External Affairs Grace Tao. The update was posted by the executive in Weibo, a local Chinese social media platform. 

Delivering the Made-in-China Model Y to customers this month allows Tesla to hit its stride with the EV crossover’s rollout and start the first quarter out strong. Starting deliveries this month means early Model Y customers will receive their vehicles before the 2021 Spring Festival/Chinese New Year celebration, which will begin on February 12.
