Electrek wrote an interesting article about Tesla trying to bounce back in China. According to local registration numbers, Tesla only delivered more than 3,000 cars in China in April.

There are rumours that Tesla has a backlog of 15,000 orders for the Model 3 Long Range RWD.


Tesla, like many other automakers, is struggling to get operations to something resembling normal within the next month in order to save its second quarter financially.

For the California-based automaker, China is going to be very important this quarter, and there are rumors that Tesla is enjoying a massive backlog of orders in that market.

According to local registration numbers, Tesla only delivered more than 3,000 cars in China in April.

That’s despite its Shanghai Gigafactory reportedly producing 3,000 vehicles per week and the Chinese car market recovering nicely after the pandemic.

However, Tesla’s sales in China were negatively affected in April due to the country modifying its EV incentives, which made the Model 3 ineligible due to its starting price.

In May, the automaker managed to reduce the price of Model 3 in order to be again eligible for the country’s EV incentives.

Furthermore, it’s likely that many customers decided to wait for the longer-range version of the Model 3, which Tesla announced in early April.

Tesla just started deliveries of the new version of the made-in-China Model 3 last week.

There are reports coming out of China stating that Tesla has accumulated a massive backlog of 15,000 orders for the Model 3 Long Range RWD.

I wonder what Tesla Model 3 order cancellations will be like in China because 15k is A LOT.
That's the thing, they can change the prices however they want but they need to ramp up production quick before people get frustrated and cancel.
