Tesla Ships First Model 3s Assembled In China

Tesla has shipped out the ¬†first 15 Model 3 sedans assembled at its new multibillion-dollar plant near Shanghai — its first outside the U.S. — to company employees at the facility.

Tesla did the same when it started production of the sedan in California in July 2017, delivering its first Model 3s to staff.

The China factory broke ground at the start of last year.

About 30 percent of the parts now used by the Shanghai facility are sourced locally, and the company plans to increase that to 100 percent by the end of 2020.
