Compared to 12,143 vehicles sold in October, the U.S. EV manufacturer boasted a precipitous growth of 78% last month. For the first eleven months, Tesla saw its cumulative sales of China-built vehicles surpass 110,000 units, making the Model 3 the best-selling new energy vehicle (NEV) model in China.

In November, Tesla was outsold by SAIC-GM-Wuling and BYD whose monthly deliveries amounted to 36,070 units and 26,015 units respectively, said the CPCA. The top 3 automakers contributed to 46.5% of the total domestically-built NEV retail sales of the country.

The deliveries of four hotter-selling China-made NEV models—the NIO ES6, the Xpeng P7, the Li ONE and the BYD Han EV—reached 2,386 units, 2,732 units, 4,646 units and 7,482 units respectively. However, their aggregates were still fewer than that of the Model 3.

Tesla's Gigafactory Shanghai has already been able to produce 5,700 Model 3s per week in November, according to a local report, which may be enough to help the automaker meet its 500,000 annual delivery target.

The Gigafactory Shanghai ramped up its production in October to 22,900 units and started exporting made-in-China Model 3s to Europe. Some industry insiders said the export business was made because company cannot handle the new domestic capacity. Nevertheless, Tesla proved it wrong by delivering over 21,000 vehicles in November.
