Tesla’s Chinese-made Model Y achieved good sales figures in February27. May 2021
After more than three months since the launch of Tesla’s Model Y in China, the electric car continues to achieve good sales figures. The midsize SUV ranks third among the best-selling e-cars in February, with 4,630 vehicles delivered. This is according to figures from the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA). If January is included, the Model Y ranks 9th among the most sold vehicles with alternative engines, which include e-cars. Contributing to the Model Y’s success in China was Tesla’s announcement on New Year’s Day that it would sell the vehicle 30 percent cheaper than announced.
The three startups Xpeng, LiAuto and Nio are among the top 15 e-car manufacturers in China, according to the CPCA. Still, big names lead the way in overall new car sales in February. The Hongguang Mini, a low-cost miniature electric car ranks No. 1 in sales. It was developed by GM joint venture Wuling Motors and state-owned SAIC Motor. Tesla’s Model 3 sedan is in second place. In third place is BYD’s Han luxury sedan, which is available as an all-electric version or with hybrid drive. The vehicle has been one of the best sellers in China since its launch last summer.
Vehicles and components must be awarded a CCC certificate in order for the products to be exported to China or manufactured locally. CCC certification is a complex project that requires professional support at all stages. For several years MPR China Certification GmbH has been entrusted with large CCC projects for the vehicle manufacturers Lotus, Tesla and Bugatti. We will be pleased to provide you with non-binding advice on the scope and requirements of a China CCC certification.
