However, there is good news because the electric vehicle manufacturer has revealed the production launch dates which will be July 1, 2017, for the first bunch. Unfortunately, Tesla is yet to reveal the actual date that customers will get their vehicles.
“The potential is huge, and Tesla is fully committed to developing the Chinese market,” stated Ren Yuxiang, the VP of Tesla for the Asia pacific region.
