Tesla delivers its first made-in-China electric cars
Tesla has started delivering Model 3 electric cars built at its Shanghai ‘Gigafactory’ in just under a year since it began work on the $2billion plant – a record for global automakers in China – and said it would ramp up deliveries from next month.
The U.S. electric vehicle maker celebrated the debut today with a ceremony where 15 Tesla employees received cars they had purchased
The China-made Model 3 sedans are priced at 355,800 yuan ($50,000, £39,000) before subsidies. Imported Model 3 vehicles start at 439,000 yuan ($63,000, £48,000) for the longer-range version, while the standard range plus model costs under $40,000 in the United States.

Model 3 is a smaller, simpler and a more affordable electric car. Designed and built as the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle, it is a critical step in Tesla’s mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.
Like every Tesla vehicle, Model 3 combines range, performance, safety and technology. Intelligent design maximizes interior space to comfortably fit five adults and all of their gear. The high-efficiency powertrain provides zero to 60 mph acceleration in as little as 3.2 seconds.
Model 3 is designed to achieve the highest safety ratings in every category. With 220 to 325 miles of range and a starting price below $40,000 before gas savings and incentives, Model 3 is Tesla’s most affordable vehicle yet.
