Another milestone for the Tesla Model 3 in China

Tesla Model 3 in red

Last month 21.604 units of the Tesla Model 3 were sold in China, which is extremely impressive considering that in October “only” 12.143 units were sold.

Moreover, now Tesla is also producing the Model 3 in China with cobalt-free LFP batteries from CATL to export it to Europe.

Teslaโ€™s planned production capacity in China for next year is 550.000 units, of which 300.000 units for the Model 3 and 250.000 units for the Model Y.



Currently, the most popular alternative to the Tesla Model 3 is the BYD Han EV that also has a cobalt-free LFP battery and had 7.482 units sold in November.

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. Iโ€™m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

I love the writers point of view…. Without oil there will be less war… Well until a country needs something another country has… Like rare earth materials, copper, lithium… sadly I am afraid his expectations will not be met. I love peace, I love democracy, but I don’t know if electric cars will get us there.
