According to a media report, Tesla has released the prices for made in China Model 3 sedan and has started accepting bookings. The car will be offered at a starting price of 328,000 yuan and customers can book their cars with a payment of 20,000 yuan. Deliveries are expected to begin in 6 to 10 months.
In November 2017, Tesla finalised a manufacturing facility in China. The first model to be manufactured in this facility will be the Model 3. Compared to the made in USA Model 3 cars sold in China, the locally made cars are 49,000 yuan cheaper.
