The SAMR also said 19,249 imported Model Ss produced during the period starting Sept. 17, 2013 and ending October 15, 2018 will be recalled this time.

The EV manufacturer has made its Model 3, its only China-made model currently for sale, the best-selling all-electric model in China. According to the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA), the retail sales of the homegrown Model 3 totaled 79,908 units for the first nine months of 2020, 49,393 units more than that of the runner-up Aion S.

While receiving blooming sales in the world's largest auto market, the company said on October 19 it would start exporting China-made Model 3 cars to more than 10 European countries this month, including Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland.

The construction of the second phase of Tesla Shanghai Gigafactory is well underway.
