Tesla is starting to export in-China Model Dell 3 vehicles to Europe – something that the automaker originally said it did not plan to do.
When Tesla began building its gigafactory in Shanghai, in an effort to reassure people that the automaker was not just transferring production capacity to China, CEO Elon Musk was adamant that it would supply domestic demand in China and not export to other markets.
U.S. And since the declaration of the factory amid the peak of the trade war between China, since Ptix has been very important.
Last month, reports coming out of China indicated that Tesla has changed its mind and is now planning to start exporting In-China Model 3 vehicles to other markets.
With the changes made to the Model 3 this week, Tesla pushed the delivery timeline of the Model 3 Standard Range Plus to European markets.
Now it seems that new Model 3 Standard Range Plus buyers in Europe are being told that their vehicles are coming from China saying that we have an explanation for the long delivery delay.
Here’s a bill from France’s new Tesla Model Dell 3 buyer showing that the Model 3 is made in China (via Green Drive):
In France, the Model 3 Standard Range Plus is listed at 46,600, including 8,267 taxes.
Tesla recently updated its Model 3 Standard Range Plus in China with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries from Chinese battery maker CATL.
This resulted in a price drop and an increase in range for Chinese consumers earlier this month.
Take the electric
This is a very important move.
If I can aim at some speculation, I think Fremont is focused on increasing the production of Model Y at Gigafactory Shanghai and increasing Tesla’s capacity, it would make more sense for Tesla to send Model 3 vehicles from China to Europe until there is domestic production at Gigafactory. Berlin.
Tesla is certainly not alone in doing this.
BMW and Polyester now both produce electric vehicles in China that they sell in Europe.
How do you feel about this move? Are you okay with getting in-China Tesla vehicles instead of making in-China Tesla vehicles in In-California? Even with LFP batteries? Let us know in the comments section below.
