Car companies in China generally adopt NEDC as the standard for calculating range, and a large number of users on social media have expressed doubts about CLTC.

Currently, except for the Model 3 Performance, all of Tesla's models sold in China use NEDC as the standard for calculating range.

Tesla has a short description of CLTC on its official website, showing that NEDC is the approach used based on the Chinese national standard GB/T 18386-2017, while CLTC-P is used based on the new national standard GB/T 18386.1-2021.

The estimated delivery time for the model is the fourth quarter, according to Tesla China's official website.

It's worth noting that the Model 3 Performance's declaration data with the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology shows that the capacity of the new version of the battery has increased by 1.6 kWh compared to the previous one, which means its actual range may not be much different.

On October 1, information on Tesla's official website in China showed that the dual-motor all-wheel-drive long-range version of the Model Y has an increased NEDC range of 640 km from the previous 594 km, with the same price of RMB 347,900 ($54,000) as before.

The Model Y Performance version has an increased NEDC range of 566 kilometers, up from 554 kilometers, and is priced at RMB 387,900.

The Model Y Standard Range version, priced at RMB 276,000, is unchanged, with an NEDC range of 525 km.

The standard range version of the Model Y is expected to be delivered in 6-10 weeks, and both versions of the dual-motor all-wheel drive are expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter, according to Tesla China's website.
