In February, 2021, 97,000 electric cars were sold in China according to China Passenger Car Association ( CPCA). This was up 7X from COVID February 2020 but a 38% decline from January. Tesla sold 18,318 Shanghai-made Model 3s and Model Ys last month. Tesla produced 23,632 cars in China in February.
Chinese new year shut down the Tesla factory in China for one week. Gigafactory Shanghai was only in operation for 21 days.
Tesla sold 15,484 Model 3 in China in January, 2021.
Car sales are usually weakest in the first quarter of the year.
CLS and several other Chinese agencies reported 15,484 as MIC M3 sales.
However, CPCA in its report cited 15,484 as Tesla China sales, it did not specify models. https://t.co/fMPmeW9SRn

Creating great markets and proving long-term quality can only help with increased likelihood of faster imporvements, price drops, and acceleration of supporting infrastructure. Win all around (until saturation of course, still decades away).
Also, want this below:
Is that just fit Model 3?
200k model 3 + how many model Y? coming out of China
So somewhere north of 200,000 assuming zero growth in sales and the same current pace.
