China-Made Tesla Model Y Could Reach 360K Units Annually: Research Report

China-Made Tesla Model Y Could Reach 360K Units Annually: Research Report

The Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model Y was released this year, earlier than Tesla projected.

We also recently learned the seven-seater version will start deliveries in December, even though Tesla's website listed 2021 availability. 

Now a new report from Tianfeng Securities is predicting Tesla will lower the price of the Model Y in China when it starts production and deliveries in the country, according to the website Seek Device.

Tianfeng is forecasting a price of 275,000 yuan ($41,000) vs. the current price of $49,990 in the U.S.

Tesla recently reduced the price of the Model 3 in China after introducing a new battery, which led to sales teams being overwhelmed with orders

Tianfeng Securities is also predicting that after the start of mass production in China, Model Y monthly sales could reach 30,000 units — and annual sales are expected to reach 360,000 units.

Benzinga's Take: Tesla's Gigafactory Shanghai has been instrumental in the company's explosive growth.

Tesla set a new delivery record in the third quarter of 2020, and a big part of that was due to China deliveries. As Tesla continues building factories in Berlin and Texas, we can expect Tesla's growth to continue to explode.
