Tesla sales in China fell 18.87% in February 2024

Data from the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) has revealed that Tesla China’s sales of Giga Shanghai-made vehicles declined in February 2024. The decrease came amidst the Chinese New Year holiday, which appears to have impacted China’s general automotive sector last month.

As per the CPCA, Tesla China sold a total of 60,365 vehicles produced in China during February 2024. This figure represents an 18.87% year-over-year decrease compared to February 2023 and a 15.51% month-over-month decline from January 2024. While Tesla China’s results in February did show a decline, it should be noted that other automakers in the country saw similar trends.



For context, BYD reported a 36.84% year-over-year decrease and a 39.30% month-over-month drop compared to January 2024. Nio saw a 33.11% year-over-year and a 19.12% month-over-month decline, and Xpeng saw a 24.38% year-over-year and 44.91% month-over-month decrease in sales, as per a report from CNEV Post. With this in mind, it would appear that Tesla China’s February 2024 results generally aligned with the country’s auto sector.

The Chinese New Year holiday this year was held from February 10 to 17, 2024. Interestingly enough, the holiday fell in January during the previous year. Tesla China sold a total of 66,051 vehicles in January 2023, 26,843 of which were sold domestically and 39,208 of which were exported to foreign territories.

Tesla operates its largest production facility by output in China, with Giga Shanghai being listed as having an annual capacity of over 950,000 vehicles. The facility produces Tesla’s two highest-selling vehicles, the Model 3 sedan and Model Y crossover, and it caters to both the domestic Chinese market and several countries abroad.

Tesla China sold a total of 71,447 Giga Shanghai-made vehicles in January 2024. These figures represented an 8.17% increase year-on-year and a 24.10% decrease compared to December 2023. As per CPCA data, Tesla China’s January sales figures included 39,881 vehicles that were sold domestically and 31,566 vehicles that were exported abroad.
