Tesla begins to export city-made Model 3s

US carmaker Tesla said yesterday it will export made-in-China Model 3s to Europe for the first time today.

The first batch of 7,000 sedans is expected to arrive at the port of Zeebrugge in Belgium by sea at the end of November, before being sold in European countries including Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland.

Tom Zhu, Vice President of Tesla Global and President of Tesla Greater China, said with the exports kicking off, Tesla China will spur domestic demand and expand the global market simultaneously in a bid to support the country establishing a “dual circulation” development pattern.

Tesla will also continuously improve production, sales, after-sales service and infrastructure in the country by honoring its China investment commitment, Zhu said.

Chen Yin, executive vice mayor of Shanghai, said at the export launch ceremony that Tesla, with the Shanghai Gigafactory as its first overseas plant, is the first foreign carmaker to benefit from China’s scrapping of stake ownership limits by foreign car manufacturers in the country.
