Tesla Inc.’s China operations are back in full swing after an upgrade to its factory in Shanghai and a Covid-19 lockdown in the city slowed production earlier this year.

Elon Musk’s electric-car maker delivered 76,965 Chinese-made vehicles in August, just shy of June’s record 77,938 and a sharp rebound from 28,217 in July, when assembly lines at Tesla’s plant in Shanghai were suspended for upgrades to double annual capacity to about 1 million units.

Of Tesla’s August total, 34,502 vehicles went to the local market and 42,463 were shipped overseas, China Passenger Car Association data released Thursday showed.

I wish there was a way to know how many BEVs and PHEVs are in this 174,915 number:

Warren Buffett-backed BYD Co. remained top with record deliveries of 174,915 cars. The Shenzhen-based automaker shipped about 1 million cars in the first eight months of the year, accounting for about two-thirds of its annual target of 1.5 million.

A slight discrepancy in the numbers, due to the inclusion of commercial BEVs, but…


According to the company’s report, in August, BYD passenger plug-in car sales amounted to 173,977, which is 188% more than a year ago and a new monthly record.

BYD plug-in car sales results:

BEVs: 82,678 (up 172% year-over-year)
PHEVs: 91,299 (up 203% year-over-year)
Total: 173,977 (up 188% year-over-year)
Some 5,092 BYD plug-ins were exported, which is also a new record.

Besides passenger cars, BYD sold also some 938 commercial electric vehicles for a total of 174,915 plug-in vehicles last month.
