Including exports, China-made Model 3 and Model Y sales in April were 26,783 and 49,059 vehicles, respectively, according to the CPCA.

(NASDAQ: TSLA) sold 75,842 China-made vehicles in April, including 35,886 units exported, according to data released today by the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA).

This means that Tesla delivered 39,956 vehicles in China in April, with 47.32 percent of the vehicles produced at the Shanghai plant being exported.

By comparison, Tesla delivered just 1,512 vehicles in China last April, when none were exported, due to the Covid lockdown in Shanghai.

The US electric vehicle maker's factory in Shanghai currently produces only the Model 3 and the Model Y. Including exports, the two models sold 26,783 and 49,059 units in April, according to the CPCA.

The breakdown figures of Model 3 and Model Y sales in China are expected to be available in a few days.

Retail sales of new energy vehicles (NEVs) in China in April were 527,000, with 370,000 battery electric vehicles (BEVs) sold, according to the CPCA.

This means that Tesla's share of the NEV market in China in April was 7.58 percent and its share of the BEV market was 10.80 percent. These two figures were 14.12 percent and 20.02 percent respectively in March.

It is worth noting that Tesla's model is to produce cars for export in the first half of the quarter and for the local market in the second half.

Tesla slightly raised the prices of all its available models in China earlier this month, which the CPCA believes will be helpful in boosting sales.

Tesla's price increase is a good signal to dispel the wait-and-see mentality of consumers who are overly expecting price cuts, the CPCA said in a report today.

On May 2, the prices of the Model 3 and Model Y were all raised by 2,000 yuan ($290) in China, an increase of less than 1 percent.

On May 5, prices for the full lineup of the new Model S and Model X, which are not manufactured in China, were all raised by RMB 19,000.
