Tesla starts deliveries of the Chinese-made Model Y crossover in world’s biggest car market

Going huge in China
In 2019, the business beat its own due date to begin making vehicles in China, beginning trial production just 10 months after it began on the plant. That enhanced self-confidence that the business had the capability to strike shipment targets as it grew.
