In 2021, China sold more than 200,000 Tesla automobiles. On a list of the top 15 electric car brands sold in the first three quarters of 2021, Tesla Models 3 and Y placed in second and third, respectively. “China remained our key export base throughout Q3,” said chief financial officer Zachary Kirkhorn on Wednesday’s results call. “In China, production has ramped up smoothly, and we’re working to improve the rate even further.” Tesla’s recent success in China comes as the California-based manufacturer is under fire from the Chinese government after a lady who purchased a Tesla protested the firm at a Shanghai auto show wearing a t-shirt that stated “breaks don’t work.” The woman was in an automobile accident as a result of a “speeding violation,” and she refused to let a third-party assess her vehicle, demanding on a reimbursement. “The arrogant and overbearing position the company demonstrated in front of the public is revolting and unacceptable,” state media and government agencies said, “which could inflict major damage on its brand and client base in the Chinese market.” In a statement, Tesla apologized and stated that company is eager to work with authorities and conduct “self-examination and self-correction” to address issues with its customer service process.
