Tesla China Q1 Shows Growing Sales to Date; Model S/X Completes Customs Inspection

Insurance data released on Tuesday in China shows estimates of Tesla’s local sales within the country landing at 32,224, from the period of January 30 to February 26, 2023.

Data compiled by @Tslachan shows from January 30 to February 5, Tesla saw insurance registrations of 8,643, followed by 69,63, 5,913 and 10,705 within the week of February 20 to 26. Insurance registrations may give a glimpse of vehicles sales in China.

Roland Pircher put these numbers right into a chart and says after just two months in Q1, Tesla has the “second best quarter ever in China.”

In every quarter shown within the charts, Tesla’s deliveries are highest throughout the third and final month of the quarter, apart from Q4 2022 (the second month, November, saw the very best deliveries).

Further data shows the Model Y was the bestselling battery electric vehicle throughout the week of February 20-26, at 7,946, outselling the Hongguang Mini at 6,807. The BYD ATTO 3 was in third place with 6,483 sales, followed by the BYD Dolphin at 5,236, then the GAC AION at 3,522 and Tesla’s Model 3 at 2,795.

In January, Tesla’s sale of China-built vehicles increased by 18 percent from December, and 10 percent 12 months over 12 months.

On January 6, Tesla cut prices on all of its models in markets around the globe, causing a registration surge in China. The automaker has since step by step increased pricing on some models in China.

The automaker later paused production at its Gigafactory Shanghai to supply an prolonged break for workers throughout the Chinese Latest Yr.

This month, Tesla has paused at the least one production line at Giga Shanghai to arrange for the Model 3 Highland refresh.

Also noted by @Tslachan, on February 28, six units of Tesla’s Model S and Model X accomplished customs inspections in China, signalling officially deliveries will start soon. We images of a red Model S being inspected and no ultrasonic sensors are seen within the front bumpers, it appears.
