Tesla delivers first China-made Model 3 cars from new plant

Tesla has started delivering Model 3 electric cars built at its Shanghai factory, just under a year since it began work on the $2bn plant, setting a record for global automakers in China, and said it would ramp up deliveries from next month.

The US-based electric vehicle maker marked the start with an event on Monday where 15 Tesla employees received cars they had purchased, one of whom took the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend after receiving his new set of wheels. The China-made Model 3 sedans are priced 355,800 yuan ($50,975) before subsidies.
